30 Apr Grant Funding Basics: Evaluation and Logic Models
Evaluation and Logic Models
Session 6 of the Grant Funding Basics Series
Almost all grant funders ask what effect a program will have on the participants and how the organization knows of a program’s success. This session will teach the development professionals who write grants methods for defining a program’s success through goals, objectives, and measurable outcomes.
What you will learn:
- The definition of a goal, objective, and outcome
- The purpose of evaluation from a funder’s perspective

Grant Funding Basics Series
Grants are about so much more than just grant writing. This series of grant trainings will guide you through 1) researching opportunities, 2) building relationships with funders, 3) designing high quality programs, 4) organizational readiness, 5) writing grant proposals, and 6) managing grants. In addition, to guide your continued learning, we have a training to help you decide where you want to grow next based on the career path options available to you.
These sessions are designed to give basic knowledge to a nonprofit professional who is just starting to learn about grants or who has had no formal training in grants. This program breaks the concepts down into manageable pieces that can be learned over time.
