Michelle Foster, President and CEO of The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation

As a result of the collaboration with Midwest Evaluation, the Foundation now is able to collect and aggregate consistent data about the work and impact of its grant recipients, make data-driven funding decisions, and better monitor the progress of its grantees and the impacts of its investments. Perhaps just as important, funded programs and organizations now have an increased capacity and the tools to monitor their own progress toward intended outcomes and to improve their services and the impact they have on their communities.
