Are you overwhelmed by the thought of conducting a program evaluation for your nonprofit organization? Don’t know how to structure it, or even where to start?
There are many ways to do program evaluation, making it difficult to know which model is best or which format to follow.
Help is here. My guest this week is Chari Smith, founder of Evaluation into Action to help nonprofit professionals create realistic and meaningful program evaluation processes.
Chari believes evaluation should be accessible, practical and usable, and she’s on the podcast to discuss her book, Nonprofit Program Evaluation Made Simple. Get your Data. Show your Impact. Improve your Programs. This book outlines a clear approach, filled with real world stories as well as examples of evaluation plans, surveys, and reports.
Some of the topics we discuss include how to create a logic model, measure impact, building a culture of evaluation, survey design basics, clear reporting techniques, and more.
Upcoming event: Survey Design Made Simple
Tuesday, April 18, 9 – 11am PST
