Program Evaluation

“Eleanor is the horse whisperer of outcomes planning. She calms confused, resistant program staffers by using language they actually understand.”
- Alina Trowbridge, St. Anthony Foundation

• Do your board and staff agree on the social impact your group is seeking to create?

• Can you easily prove your organization’s impact on your clients and the community?

• Do you lack confidence when prospective board or staff ask about your impact?

• Do you talk about “deliverables” (number of clients, classes, etc.) when asked what difference your group is making?
