Building Capacity for Program Evaluation

ReLearning Curve is partnering with the Capacity Building and Oversight Unit of the Mayor’s Office of Contract Services to provide a half-day workshop on Building Capacity for Program Evaluation on November 13th, 2014.

Funders including foundations and City agencies evaluate programs regularly to measure whether providers are providing required services and reports on time, operating programs according to the financial guidelines and budgets, and providing quality services to clients. More and more nonprofits are now building their own internal capacity to evaluate the success of their programs based on whether a program is making the desired change in the world and their clients’ lives. Nonprofits invest in program evaluation capacity so the management and board can understand whether the organization is achieving its mission. Having a mission-aligned outcome framework can also help nonprofit organizations manage and inform funders’ expectations of their outcomes. This training session will describe best practices for building and maintaining evaluation systems and a culture of evaluation. Representatives from the Robin Hood Foundation will talk about the benefits of evaluation from a funder’s perspective.

This workshop will take place from 9:00am-12:30pm at One Centre Street, 24th Floor, Lower Manhattan.

Targeted to nonprofit executives and program managers, registration required.
