Program Evaluation: Possible, Practical, & Painless

Program evaluation serves as a tool to demonstrate your nonprofit’s performance, increase its abilities for obtaining funds or future planning, and fulfill organizational objectives. By communicating the results of the evaluation, your organization will inform its staff, board, clients/customers, funders, the other stakeholders about the benefits and effectiveness of your organization’s services and programs. This session is for executive directors, program staff, and board members who want to strengthen their skills in understanding the role and purpose of evaluation.

This webinar will explain the need for program evaluation, what evaluation can provide and what happens when nonprofits do not effectively evaluate programs and services. The session will feature practical evaluation techniques and best practices to determine whether programs are having the intended effects. Participants will learn how to use evaluation as a tool for decision making, strategic planning, reporting, or program modification.


By the completion of this webinar participants will:
– Understand basics of evaluation planning including terms/definitions – inputs, outputs, outcomes, etc.

– Understand the critical components of program evaluation.
– Understand and develop a framework for program evaluation for their organization and
methods for measuring/tracking outcomes.
– Develop an effective and relevant evaluation dissemination plan.
