Evaluations: What Do Funders Really Want?
Telling the Story of Your Organization's Success

Pre-registration is now closed. Walk-ins are welcome as always.

Hear from a panel of experienced grantwriters and funders who will talk about the best way to describe your organization’s Evaluation process in your proposals. The panel will comment on evaluation descriptions from actual proposals and take questions from the audience.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Describing outcomes that are difficult to measure such as prevention and advocacy 
  • Consistency between needs statements, project descriptions, and evaluation statements
  • Common mistakes to avoid 
  • Components you absolutely must have 

Confirmed participants are Jessica Luke, the Director of the Museology Graduate Program at the University of Washington, Jeff Natter, Executive Director of Pacific Hospital PDA, Christopher Wiggins, Program Officer with Liberty Mutual Foundation, and Erika Nesholm, Executive Director at the Nesholm Family Foundation. 


Members: Free!
