Outcome Measurement for a Community Literacy Program (2011)

With funders looking for measurable outcomes, accountability has become an important issue in the non-profit sector. This document describes a community literacy organization’s efforts to develop a method for measuring outcomes that would satisfy funders and, at the same time, guide the organization’s planning and practice.

The authors describe the stages of the project, including choosing which outcomes to measure; specifying indicators; collecting data; organizing data and reporting; and using the findings.

A number of recommendations emerged from the project, including a suggestion that small non-profit organizations would be in a better position to measure outcomes if more technical assistance were available from governments, national associations, and community foundations.
