Empowering Nonprofits Through Data
We help nonprofits transform questions into data, data into insight, insight into action—and action into success
We offer a range of focused services to support your program evaluation process
A logic model is a visual summary of what your program does. We use a collaborative process to ensure the logic model accurately reflects your program as well as meets the needs of both development and program staff. Traditional logic models include components such as inputs, outputs, outcomes, activities, impact, and so on. We customize the logic model, to ensure the components that are a true reflection of your program are included. We also ensure your model aligns with your brand identity, using the colors and style that align with your brand message.
Database Needs Assessment
Do you need a database, but not sure what system and/or how to organize the information? This assessment will dive deeply into your program data management needs. The assessment results will position you to more easily identify what database vendors are the best fit for your organization. Evaluation into Action is also available to work with current database vendors to serve as a bridge between your database needs, and the database vendor’s capabilities. We do not endorse any particular database vendor.
A picture is worth a thousand words. We help you define the key points you want to communicate, and develop how to illustrate them. We apply data visualization in the logic model, program design, and reports.
A comprehensive literature review digs deeply into your topic. It is an effective method to learn from others who have developed programs before you. We ensure your questions are answered, so you can use the literature review results as a springboard to launch a new program, expand a current one, and/or supplement development efforts.
Chari did a terrific series of meetings with my team.
Chari did a terrific series of meetings with my team. She captured their pride in the work they do and the dedication they have for the Foundation in a logic model that reflects 100% buy in and the organic nature of the work we do. I would bring her back for other work.
