“Small organizations only have the resources to do what they HAVE to do.”
“When you don’t have the time and resources, it’s the evaluation piece that gets cut.”
Nonprofits have told us that they don’t have the financial and human resources to do evaluation to the extent that they want to. Yet, we all recognize that evaluation is a powerful tool that helps to maintain the important programming or programs provided by Ontario’s non-profits. This clinic discusses how we can make better use of our current evaluation practices and how to maximize our resources to get the most out of our evaluation efforts.
