TNB Roundtable: Funders Supporting Nonprofits’ Capacity to Do Evaluation
Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite funders to a Roundtable session about underwriting initiatives to enable nonprofit organizations to build the capacity to do evaluation.
We have a very distinguished panel for this session:
- Douglas Shipman, Hartford Foundation for Public Giving
- Ellen Dickenson, United Way of Masschusetts Bay & Merrimack Valley
- Michael Johnson, McCormack Graduate School of UMass-Boston
- Trina Jackson, TSNE MissionWorks
This is really a dream team! Doug and Ellen each have first hand experience at grantmaking organizations in managing programs that build the capacity of nonprofits to do evaluation. Michael is an educator with deep expertise in community-based participatory research. Trina is not only a funder but also an expert on community inclusion and engagement.
Our goals for this session are to share lessons learned from assisting nonprofits in building their capacity to do evaluation, and to highlight the potential for making nonprofit evaluation more meaningful and useful through community participation.
