Nonprofits are increasingly driven to collect data and use evaluation to strengthen their programs and demonstrate results. Although there have been a number of national studies regarding nonprofit evaluation practices, little was known about evaluation efforts in the Central Texas community. Greenlights has worked to fill this gap by learning more about local evaluation practices and the successes and challenges organizations face. This report highlights our major findings and includes key recommendations for nonprofit leaders and funders.
This report, released by Greenlights in 2009, contains information about the 6309* 501(c)(3) public charities in the Austin MSA.
To learn more about the specific needs of Central Texas nonprofits and their boards, we conducted an intensive research study to evaluate boards and the issues with which they struggle.This inaugural report, released in April 2011, highlights eight key growth opportunities for nonprofit boards of directors.
See the detailed responses from the 2009 Nonprofit Pulse Survey, showing that 66% of Austin area nonprofits have experienced an increase in demand for their services and, over the same period, 54% experienced a drop in contributions.
This survey, administered by Greenlights and United Way Capital Area, shows Austin area nonprofits are experiencing significant increase in demand for services with fewer resources to meet that demand.
