A program of the World Bank Group and the Urban Institute to increase the performance measurement capacity of Washington, DC, area nonprofits
Nonprofits recognize the importance of measuring program effectiveness, but their abilities vary widely, and resources for improvement are scarce. With Measure4Change, the World Bank Group and Urban Institute aim to fill this long-standing gap between what nonprofits in the DC area want and what they’re able to do. Begun in 2014, the effort intends to deliver performance measurement training in a more practical and accessible way over an extended period to help it take hold. The ultimate goal of this effort is to help the DC region’s nonprofits better understand how they are helping their constituencies and to recommend changes to do even better.
Measure4Change has three components: grant support and one-on-one technical assistance for grantees, a regional community of practice, and knowledge briefs.
