Evaluation for Social Impact Organizations
Navigating change by asking and answering powerful questions
Praxis Associates helps organizations uncover the next big thing that needs to happen and navigate a way forward.
Have you experienced evaluation as judgy, pigeon-holing and intimidating? Do you feel that it results in long, cumbersome reports that no one reads? You are busy changing the world. You don’t have time for that and neither do we.
We will partner with you to develop tailored evaluation plans that reflect your values, use rigorous methods, and produce valid and useful information. And we will help you translate what you learn into action. The result will help you respond to funders, but more importantly, strengthen what you do.
