Appointed as Program Evaluator, Community Partners
Community Partners offers expert guidance, essential services, and a strong dose of passion to help foster, launch, and grow creative solutions to community challenges. For close to 25 years, hundreds of individuals, groups, foundations, and other institutions have worked with Community Partners to create new nonprofit projects, establish coalitions, and manage major philanthropic initiatives to benefit the region. Across all program areas, Community Partners works toward our organizational vision: a vibrant society in which individuals and institutions use knowledge, resources, and relationships to build equitable, democratic, and thriving communities. Community Partners today works with upwards of 150 projects and initiatives and manages over $42 million in revenues annually. Our work spans the fields of civic engagement, arts and culture, education, social justice, health, public policy, social services, and youth. The Program Evaluator reports to the Director of Programs and will be responsible for creating an evaluation framework for fiscal sponsorship that will help Community Partners assess the impact of our assistance to our sponsored projects. As a member of our fiscal sponsorship team, the Program Evaluator will also serve as a resource to our fiscally-sponsored projects to help them assess and design their individual data collection and evaluation needs.
