Don't Rob Your Nonprofit...

From my book, Functional & Funded: "Begin framing your approach to evaluation by understanding that it is part of effective program management. Carrying out your efforts without evaluating them is a form of organizational self indulgence that belies any concern for quality. The consequence of such laziness is to rob your organization of the most legitimate inducement to continue the quest for external funds, that is, documented program excellence and resultant impact."
