How Project Evident Benefits Nonprofits, Funders and Researchers

We want to make evidence-building a continuous process, driven by nonprofits and funders and valuable to everyone involved. 

Valuable to Nonprofits

  • We will provide accessible evidence-building tools, talent, and approaches that speed up program improvement and make programs easier to scale. 
  • We will provide a “safe space” to test innovations, where the only consequence of a failed experiment is more learning.

Valuable to Funders

  • We will help funders motivate grantees to use evidence for continual improvement and maximum impact. 
  • We will build a pipeline of evidence-based programs ripe for scale-up investment. These programs will have verified market demand, increasing the likelihood that they will sustain themselves after scale-up. 

Valuable to Researchers

  • We will strengthen the pipeline of nonprofits prepared for rigorous, independent evaluations.
  • We will increase demand for the new, cost-effective approaches to evidence-building that researchers are developing.
