You won the grant. You implemented an amazing program. You made a real difference in the world. So everything is a success, right?  Not necessarily. Under uniform grant guidance, funders don’t settle for what you say about your performance.  They want you to document that performance.

That’s why knowing how to conduct a summative evaluation can give you such an edge!  Unfortunately, even seasoned grant professionals find the process challenging.  But what if it didn’t have to be? 

What if one of the grant community’s leading authorities mapped it all out for you? What if you mastered exactly how to analyze and interpret your data?  And what if you left that session knowing how to write a basic evaluation plan—and ready to use it to prove your program’s value? Now, you can!

Trade assumptions for powerful data.  You’ll learn how to use fundamental data analysis and interpretation methods to uncover meaningful measures, like how people’s lives changed because of your work and the funder’s investment. You’ll also gain insight into the role of the external evaluator and how you can implement formal summative evaluation processes—with or without an external evaluator. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for expert guidance on how to do—and use—summative evaluation, including how to:

  • Understand the formal evaluation process and its role in successful grantsmanship
  • Follow the steps necessary to complete a summative evaluation
  • Apply fundamental data analysis and interpretation methods
  • Know what you can do with (or without) an external evaluator
  • Write a basic (yet comprehensive) summative evaluation plan
