We are pleased to introduce the final tool created as part of the Forum’s national leadership project to strengthen the capacity of RAs to provide high quality learning opportunities to grantmakers. “Your Toolkit for Successful Evaluations” has been designed and assembled by the Macro International evaluation team, with the support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, as a starter kit to promote the integration of effective evaluation into grantmaker education programs.
Each of the components in this toolkit has been developed in direct response to input from representatives of regional associations on what would be most useful. It is presented as a companion piece to the recently released grantmaker education framework (PDF) as a system for improving your grantmaker education offerings.
This core set of tools includes:
- general tips for conducting successful evaluations
- guidance and examples for defining and understanding a program’s logic
- how-to instructions for designing participant questionnaires
- an annotated guide to existing evaluation resources to support good practice
Access the materials at:
In order to support your use of the toolkit we will hold a conference call with the Macro team of Helene Jennings and Dawn Roberts. Please join us to review the resources on Thursday, June 10 at 2:00 ET. Register here.
