Research Grants

Valuing Voices received a Faster Forward Fund research grant for sustained impact evaluation by expert evaluator Michael Scriven through the Marin Community Foundation (2017).

A review of eight projects with end-of-project and post project evaluation reports suggest that post project evaluations can contribute to better understanding of the sustainability of project impacts and identify unexpected and emerging outcomes years after project close.

The review highlights some of the methodological issues that are unique to post project (as opposed to end of project) evaluation, and point to the advantages of planning for sustainability measurement from the outset of the project. If not, what planning is needed at project end

Organizations that fund post project evaluations offer a range of reasons for doing so: to learn, to promote a success, to inform replication or scale, to provide justification for future funding, to promote accountability.
