In recent years, internal evaluation has become increasingly useful, both for nonprofit organizations and for funders. For funders, such mechanisms have been useful to measure the success of their funding strategies. For nonprofits, they have been used both to satisfy the increasing external demand for accountability and to more accurately measure their impacts and successes.
The nonprofits that have utilized evaluation most successfully are those that have embraced them by fully integrating them into their programs and operations, involving staff, stakeholders, and board members to produce continuous internal improvements that build on prior successes and increase impact.
