• Description

Clear statements of the intended results of work to be completed under a grant are essential for shaping the project to be undertaken, for monitoring progress and making any necessary adjustments as the work proceeds, and for assessing the effectiveness and impact of the work as the grant ends. The Walton Family Foundation uses grant performance measures – outputs and outcomes – to express intended results and later to assess success in achieving those results. This document provides guidance for developing grant outputs and outcomes, with examples. If you have any questions, please contact your program officer.
