Understanding Evaluation in Nonprofits:
Using Sound Evaluation Practicies to Support
Your Program's Success.
February 1, 2013
The Improve Group helps organizations understand the impact of their activities and how they can apply evaluation methods toward achieving their missions. Their approach is collaborative, participatory and flexible. When working with clients, they work closely with stakeholders to establish evaluation priorities and develop creative and pragmatic ways to gather data. This workshop will begin by covering the “Why?” of evaluation and then exploring how to use specific tools such as surveys, focus groups, interviews, observations, logic models and more!
1:00pm – 4:00pm
