Training and consulting customized to meet your needs

Understanding how grantmakers, collaborative partners, and even your stakeholders will evaluate a project proposal is essential to winning their support. This workshop offers a step-by-step process that can help your organization outline and plan programs — and develop successful strategies to demonstrate why they merit support — using an assessment tool known as a “logic model”. Most logic models start with the intended outcomes in mind, and include common elements for program design, evaluation, and required resources.

Participants will learn to:

  • Share expectations within your organization, and facilitate conversations about a program’s intent, goals, and anticipated outcomes with potential partners and funders
  • Outline the activities and methods required to produce a program’s proposed outcomes
  • Create a proactive plan for tracking, measuring, and evaluating a program
  • Determine costs-per-outcome in order to explain and promote a program’s results in grant applications, funding appeals, annual reports, marketing materials, etc.
  • Prepare information commonly requested in grant applications and proposals
