Scattergood and Barra are sending 6 nonprofits to Yale

Sort of. Apps are now open for the Building Evaluation Capacity Initiative, though which six local orgs will spend time with The Consulting Center at Yale.

Thomas Scattergood Behavioral Health Foundation and the Barra Foundation want to send local nonprofits to the Ivy League.

The pair just put out a call for applications for their Building Evaluation Capacity Initiative, a six-year-old capacity-building program for local nonprofits. Reps from six organizations will get to spend two years with The Consulting Center at Yale learning to “track program processes and outcomes, and to communicate effectively about evaluation and quality assurance data.”

Also, logic models!

Past participants include ACHIEVEability, Project HOME, Hopeworks ‘N Camden, Nationalities Service Center and Turning Points for Children.

As we’ve heard time and time again, metrics matter, as does communicating your nonprofit’s outcomes effectively. This program could be an opportunity for a nonprofit unfamiliar with intensive evaluation practices to get initiated.

Apps must be in by 5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 14, and you’ll find out if you’re in by Sept. 14. Questions? Email Alyson Ferguson at aferguson@scattergoodfoundation.org.
