Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite funders to a Roundtable session about underwriting initiatives to enable nonprofit organizations to build the capacity to do evaluation.
We have a very distinguished panel for this session:
- Douglas Shipman, Hartford Foundation for Public Giving
- Ellen Dickenson, United Way of Masschusetts Bay & Merrimack Valley
- Michael Johnson, McCormack Graduate School of UMass-Boston
- Trina Jackson, TSNE MissionWorks
This is really a dream team! Doug and Ellen each have first hand experience at grantmaking organizations in managing programs that build the capacity of nonprofits to do evaluation. Michael is an educator with deep expertise in community-based participatory research. Trina is not only a funder but also an expert on community inclusion and engagement.
Our goals for this session are to share lessons learned from assisting nonprofits in building their capacity to do evaluation, and to highlight the potential for making nonprofit evaluation more meaningful and useful through community participation.
1) In keeping with the spirit of the TNB Roundtable series, this session will NOT be a sales pitch for any product or service. This will be an opporrtunity for grant makers and other philanthropic professionals to learn with and from their peers in other organizations.
2) This session is for grant makers and employees of grant making organizations. It is not designed to meet the needs of vendors, volunteers, students, consultants, job-seekers, and others.
3) Participation in this session is free of charge. However, you must have a confirmed registration in order to attend.
5) If this session is booked to capacity by the time you seek to register for it, please go ahead and put yourself on the waiting list. We have a good track record of finding seats for those who are on the waiting list.
We hope that you can join us for a vigorous and informative conversation, in which you will be welcome to share your knowledge and experience with your peers!
