Project Clearinghouse

An interactive online Project Clearinghouse is one of our newest developments. The clearinghouse is intended to be a rich online resource for nonprofit and funding organizations exploring ways to build evaluative capacity‚Äč. Extensive data available to review from a variety of our successful projects.

In 1996, public and private funders, nonprofits organizations and evaluators formed a collaborative in Rochester, NY which focused on building evaluation capacity and the use of data-based decision-making.   The Rochester Effectiveness Partnership (REP) provided in-depth, high-quality training with consistent coaching. It also created a model of collaboration that enabled funders, service providers and evaluation professionals to work as partners.

Governance and management of the Partnership were shared among all member organizations with one representative from each participating organization serving on the Governance Team which met regularly to define the work of REP and attend to other community-wide evaluation-related issues.
