Measuring Impact: Our Approach

MakeWay engages in ongoing evaluation to measure impact. This process is highly relational, and involves building and maintaining long term partnerships rooted in trust. We try to reduce the administrative burdens placed on community partners. In addition to informal check-ins and community visits, we gather feedback from community partners at convenings, through surveys, and through regular grant reporting. To foster shared learning for both funders and grantees, a story sharing process is also used by some funding collaboratives to further learning and to inform decision-making.
