Evaluation Updates - December 2015

Fresh From The Blog! 

Unpacking Nonprofit Evaluation: Who is taking the risks and who is making the decisions?

In our work to develop a sector-driven evaluation strategy, we have been thinking a lot about the relationship between evaluation and accountability. Perhaps you have a new grant from a funder that includes a requirement to evaluate. Maybe you have been contacted by an outside evaluation consultant on behalf of a funder. Evaluation seems to become more stressful and less useful in these kinds of situations where an external agent requires it as part of its accountability process. The goal of this blog is to unpack that frustration a little bit in order to understand it better.
