Evaluating programs for social impact is very important, yet many nonprofit, community-based, and grassroots organizations don't have the skills, tools, or capacity to successful do so. Conventional methods of program evaluation can be lacking when encountering the living-and-learning-in-place perspective that frequently characterizes nonprofit and community-based organization.  This workshop was designed to help community-based or grassroots non-profit organizations identify opportunities, develop programs, prepare funding proposals, and document intangible outcomes to complement more conventional evaluation data. The workshop will include time for individuals to apply the ideas to their unique programs and get immediate feedback.
