Just about anyone giving out money wants to see a return on investment. This is the case for big companies – and grant makers. When it comes to foundations and other private donors, the people sending you money hope it will result in measurable improvement at your school, program, or whatever they’re investing in. Most want to hear your plan for tracking the program’s success on the front end, in the grant application. That may sound like a big task – but with planning and the right data, it doesn’t have to be. Kristina Saccone from Collaborative Communications will walk through some tips to help you plan an evaluation, describe it in your grant request, and show prospective donors how their investment will pay off in the end.
