What is Good Measure?
Good Measure is a group of philanthropic organizations who work together with their grantees to creatively and strategically use data to make a bigger difference in the lives of more people.
The collaborative was founded in 2015 by a group of Central Texas funders interested in exploring how they could pool resources, commit staff time, and offer a unified voice concerning the importance of using evaluation for learning and continuous improvement.
Key goals for Good Measure include:
• Invest in non-profit data and evaluation training and resources
• Encourage and equip funders to support grant partners’ and the broader nonprofit community’s data and evaluation efforts
• Advocate for community data systems and infrastructure
• Collectively build and sustain cultures of data, learning and inquiry to amplify community impact
