Grant Evaluation and Support


Many organizations are tasked with solving the problems of citizens, communities, the state, and beyond. Through innovative programs and initiatives, you may be making a positive difference, but the question is how much of a difference? Does your organization know how effective its programs are? More importantly, are you asked to demonstrate the value of your work to others?

If your mission is bigger than your budget, Auburn Montgomery Outreach can provide assistance to find the right grant to fund an existing program or to launch a new initiative. Since 2006, we have helped clients win more than $95 million in grants, and have partnered with many of them to evaluate the programs funded through these grants.

We can help you demonstrate the success of your programs by showing their measurable impact. Together, we will create an evaluation plan that defines key components including goals, inputs, outputs, and outcomes. Using this plan, we will gather and analyze the relevant data, and report the findings. The ability to prove that your programs are “evidence-based” is vital to securing future funding and for energizing and mobilizing stakeholder support for your programs.
