For foundations working toward increasing their impact, evaluation is a key step in refining and focusing any grantmaking program. At this facilitated peer-to-peer conversation, we’ll take a look at how evaluation can guide the work of funders that are interested in having the most impact with their giving.
Join local members of the Association of Small Foundations and Philanthropy New York as we discuss evaluation—including how it’s done and why. We’ll have tips from experienced grantmakers and share stories detailing how evaluation can help all foundations move closer to achieving their desired impact and make the work of your foundation—and your grantees—much more effective.
