Some funders are increasing their expectations for rigorous evaluation approaches, making grant seeking and management increasingly complex and competitive. Perhaps your organization has been surprised to miss out on a grant because the funder found your evaluation plan to be insufficient or because you didn't make use of evaluation data to make the case for your project. When done well, evaluation can be a powerful tool for creating compelling grant proposals and aligning your work with funder priorities.

Join us for a fun and interactive session on March 12 from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm at the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits in St. Paul. We will provide a framework for thinking about and including evaluation “at the front end” of the proposal process and using it for reporting at the end of the grant period. We will explore interpreting funder requirements, touch on the components of an evaluation plan, and discover the needs of the various stakeholders once you are implementing your grant. We will show you some of the tools used in evaluation and how they can help you more clearly describe your program. 

Can’t make it to our workshop? Or need to dive deeper into funder requirements and how your program can meet them when you’re applying for or after receiving a grant? Want to find alignment between the needs of different funders so that you can streamline your data management? We can help! Feel free to contact us at and we can scope out your specific needs and tackle this together.
