Evaluation Institute - IMPACT Planning & Evaluation 
Partners: Faye McBeath Foundation, Greater Milwaukee Foundation, Kubly Family Foundation, Siebert Foundation and WE Energies Through the Evaluation Institute, IMPACT Planning & Evaluation builds the capacity of Milwaukee-area nonprofits to use evaluation to strengthen outcomes. The goal is to transform the quality of the data grant makers receive from grantees. With better data, grant makers will be able to make investments that are truly results-informed. At the same time, nonprofits will build their internal evaluation capacity and better understand the impact their programs are having on participants.
