Scholarly Poster


Organizational performance improvement cannot be expected without continuous monitoring and evaluations. Nonprofit organizations (NPOs) funded through government grants and other funder contracts face high expectations for evaluation and reporting of data as they are held accountable to their funders.

However, NPOs share common struggles in both measuring and building evaluation capacity, which refers to the ability for an organization to conduct an effective evaluation that meets accepted standards of the discipline. Thus, the purpose of this research was to answer the question: How does an NPO use an ECB framework and its tool as a guide while building its evaluation capacity?
