About Us

In This Section

We are a nonprofit that works with foundation leaders and other evaluators to advance evaluation and learning practice in philanthropy so that it helps to produce better and faster results. 

We are field builders with a point of view. We aim to make evaluation and learning more powerful and transformative in the pursuit of social change
We are tuned in to the demands of the philanthropic sector, but are not passive respondents to it. We don’t just identify what is wrong. We focus on solutions, sharing wisdom and know-how on forward-looking practices.
We advance evaluation practice in areas that are challenging to assess and where traditional approaches to program evaluation are not a good fit. These tend to be areas of high complexity.
We also lead the Evaluation Roundtable, a network of foundation leaders in evaluation that aims to improve evaluative practice in philanthropy.
