Advancing Equity Technical Assistance Grant

Evaluate for Change firmly believes in strengthening and empowering all communities. An essential aspect of our work is to use data and evaluation to improve programming that has a positive impact in the lives of those most marginalized by our society. In response to the change of the new Presidential administration’s priorities, Evaluate for Change will be awarding two (2) grassroots organizations a year long advising grant. Organizations need to demonstrate a commitment towards achieving equity. This may include advancing the lives of women, people of color, the LGBT community and/or people who are experiencing issues with immigration.



Organizations can accomplish achieving their goals through policy and/or direct practice. The intent of this grant is to aid these organizations in learning to use data to empower themselves to find new opportunities to support these populations and track their accomplishments as these organizations press on during the new administration.

  • An operating budget of under $1,000,000
  • Have a mission for improving the lives of marginalized communities
  • Able to commit to 50 hours of evaluation advising from May 2017-April 2018

Awardees will leverage data to improve programming, raise awareness, and gain more funding. The program is designed to help organizations be the most effective in achieving their goals.
