Theory of Change Template (Get Useful Nonprofit Data)
Having a Theory of Change Template is not enough. To be a data-driven nonprofit, you need to actually use your Theory of Change (TOC) to help you identify useful data. At the start of every evaluation process (e.g., program evaluation, developmental evaluation, etc.), we often develop a theory of change. A TOC is one of the many great monitoring and evaluation tools that can help identify useful data for nonprofits. In this Connecting Evidence video, I’ll outline steps you can take to use your theory of change. A theory of change can help with nonprofit capacity building and using it can further help you think critically about your work (thus, facilitate evaluation capacity building).
