During the second part of this skill-building program, attendees will learn how foundations can co-create program models with community and philanthropic partners for better evaluation and shared learning.

In the first session, we discussed creating an organizational theory of change to understand your foundation’s social impact goals and measure progress on those goals. For Part II, we’ll take a look at how to use program models, such as logic models and impact maps, to effectively assess and improve upon your work. And to ensure evaluation is accessible, equitable, and right-sized for all organizations involved, speakers will explain how funders can build these models with grantee partners and community members.

Kim Boller, Chief Strategy and Evaluation Officer at The Nicholson Foundation will kick off the conversation with an introduction of logic models, and best practices for building a learning culture focused on linking goals to activities and measurable outcomes. Then, Andy Fraizer, Executive Director at Community Foundation of South Jersey and Elena Ragusa, consultant and founder of DRIVE Evaluation Studio, will share their work on Transform South Jersey, how they co-designed their Impact Map with partners, and how their staff continues to work closely with communities in South Jersey to drive and assess outcomes.

Join us to learn about tools for creating logic models and strategies for how to involve communities and other partners in the evaluation and learning process from the outset.
