Speaker: Heather Stombaugh
You won the grant. You implemented an amazing program. You made a real difference in the world. So everything is a success, right? Not necessarily. Under the uniform grant guidance, funders don’t settle for what you say about your performance. They want you to document that performance. That’s why knowing how to conduct a summative evaluation can give you such an edge! Unfortunately, even seasoned grant professionals find the process challenging. But what if it didn’t have to be? In this 90-minute webinar, leading grants consultant Heather Stombaugh shows you how to turn program evaluations into a competitive advantage for your organization. From navigating the process, itself, to managing the metrics and interpreting data, you’ll learn how to document the specific ways that your program is making a difference. You’ll learn how to use fundamental data analysis and interpretation methods to uncover meaningful measures, like how people’s lives changed because of your work and the funder’s investment. You’ll also gain insight into the role of the external evaluator and how you can implement formal summative evaluation processes—with or without an external evaluator.
