Important: Our evaluation program has changed.  Thank you for your patience. Questions? Email us at grants@grayff.org.

Our goal is to create effective programs that can serve as models of excellence for Oregon.  Whether the program involves incorporating nature activities into a school program, taking sixth graders to a resident outdoor education center, or working with classroom teachers on strategies for promoting sustainability in their schools, the aim of providing quality educational experiences remains the same.

Building evaluation into program design and implementation from the start can help us answer some basic questions. Often, in the course of implementing a program, various types of information are gathered.  We may want to know how many individuals participated in an event, whether workshops were delivered on schedule, or whether participants were generally satisfied with the logistics. Answers to these questions provide useful information.  They help us monitor specific aspects of the program. As part of your Gray Family Foundation grant, we will ask you to collect and report some basic information about the planning and implementation of your program.
