Learning & Evaluation Center

Nonprofit leaders and their funders will develop and implement evidence-based programs using multi-year evidence-building plans that

  • incorporate the latest evaluation, learning and evidence-building approaches
  • align with local, state, and federal budget and policy priorities 
  • address implementation, constituent, and cost-effectiveness/efficiency considerations 
  • prepare for rigorous third-party evaluations 
  • set clear program-improvement and learning agendas
  • assess talent, budget, and other infrastructure needs
  • build strategies to access evidence-based funding streams
  • package multi-year evidence-building strategies for investment by funders 

The goal for the strategic evidence-building planning effort is to develop a pipeline of investable plans. Initially we will work with funders to nominate participants. Over time, we will develop shareable processes and tools that funders can use on behalf of their grantees.
