About this grant

This grant will provide partial support for the second and third years of a three-year evaluation of the nonprofit technology service field. The goals of the evaluation are to: assess the impact of technology on nonprofit organizational efficiency and mission achievement; understand the impact and effectiveness of services provided by technology service providers; and build evaluation capacity of technology service providers and establish systems to support ongoing, collaborative evaluation efforts among them. The evaluation is being conducted by NPower, a national network of nonprofit technology assistance providers, in partnership with the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network, a membership organization of people and organizations who help nonprofits understand and employ technology. The evaluation will include technology assistance benchmark analyses and case study development at the organizational level, as well as research at the sector level to develop a set of evaluation resources for technology service providers, nonprofit organizations and funders.
