Program evaluation has become part of the nonprofit lexicon, particularly when dealing with funders. Although we may have reluctantly entered into the world of evaluation, it does provide information useful to understanding our programs and making choices and decisions. Thus, the evaluation process is about more than pleasing a funder. It enables you to understand, verify or increase the impact of your services, demonstrating outcomes. The process forces us to move beyond our instincts, or anecdotal information, or educated guesses to know what clients really need, whether we are providing that and whether our resources are being directed effectively. With evaluation and the accurate data it provides, we can improve our delivery systems and become more efficient, as we identify strengths and weaknesses.

This class provides an overview of program evaluation tools, including a step-by-step model, as you engage in focused dialogue about concrete ways to assess your programs. You will leave with proven tools, approaches, techniques, and ideas that are customizable to the evaluation of a wide range of programs within your organization.
