Evaluation and Accountability

With its broad, first-hand experience in the cultural sector, WolfBrown offers the objective, informed perspective and research experience that is necessary for effective design and evaluation of foundation grant programs and funded programming initiatives. Our work in this area centers on equity and we continuously strive to incorporate the principles of equitable evaluation into our project staffing and research designs.

Our consultants have provided analyses ranging from program evaluations for private foundations and their funded intermediaries to research on grant-funded audience development and community engagement initiatives. Our evaluation work draws on rigorous methodological designs that are tailored to the specific needs of the client. As part of this work, WolfBrown is frequently asked to provide technical assistance to grant recipients.
