Grounded in the belief that evaluation of outcomes moves the sector forward, SVP Boulder County measures our impact on both the nonprofits and donor volunteers we engage.
We evaluate success across a number of dimensions – from attendee feedback on the value of our educational programming, the movement reported within our Catapult Investees (find case studies here), to the satisfaction of our Partner members. We seek to understand how we’re making a difference, and where there’s room to improve. Learn more, below:
