A publication from Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (GEO) and released with the Council on Foundations, explores how evaluation can help grantmakers learn and improve their practices—and not just “prove” results. The publication offers a brief overview of how grantmakers are looking at evaluation as a means of improvement.
