No grant application is complete without a statement about metrics. For some funders, a measure of attendance will suffice; others ask for complex logic models. At either extreme, responsible evaluation should demonstrate the impact of the program to funders and help the company learn from its successes and mistakes. In this session, hear from various foundation and corporate representatives about what they value in program evaluation and how they coach their grantees to learn from the same metrics.
