Many funders require evaluation metrics to assess grant outcomes, but the process is often outside of grantee input. Opening up the impact measurement process to collaboration allows funders to set meaningful indicators for outcomes, permits co-learning with grantees, and deepens the ongoing funding relationship. This program will explore ways of framing collaborative impact evaluation and provide relevant examples from the field.
