Our goal is simple: To make quality program evaluation accessible to all.


Evaluation has increasingly been recognized as an important part of organizational work. But access to training about and performance of evaluation, and sustaining enhanced evaluation capacity is often challenging.  This is especially true for Nonprofit organizations where resources are stretched thin.

Evaluation Services is the multi-faceted approach we use to support the evaluation-related work of others in Nonprofit and Philanthropic organizations.  Our goal is to help organizations use evaluation – by serving as an independent external evaluator, as an evaluation partner undertaking participatory evaluation, as a trainer, and/or as an advisor/coach for learning and completion of actual evaluation projects.
