Programs are more successful when the evaluation component is built into the planning stage. People who work in nonprofit organizations want to evaluate their programs in order to document their success, build upon their achievements, or learn from their mistakes. Sometimes program evaluation is required by the funder. No matter the reason, it is a good idea to bring in an independent evaluator, because she or he brings specialized expertise and an outsider’s perspective to the process. Maggie excels at both formative and summative evaluation on behalf of her clients. Services include creating evaluation plans and logic models, conducting interviews, surveys, and focus groups, and writing reports.
