Our Work

An Ecosystem Approach

Project Evident is committed to building a new culture of evidence where practitioners are in the driver’s seat.

A New Culture of Evidence

The status quo in evidence building has caused inefficiencies, burnout, and distrust. We’ve seen how, when outside evaluators and funders set incentives and evidence agendas, practitioners don’t end up getting the information they need to improve their programs.

Practitioners—the leaders and program staff at nonprofits, school districts, and public agencies—are the ones that are directly responsible for serving communities. They have unmatched knowledge and experience and should be in the driver’s seat.

We’re committed to flipping the script by shifting power, priorities, and resources toward next generation evidence practices. We work from all angles, combining deep consulting partnerships with field-building initiatives that seek to build an equitable and practitioner-centric evidence ecosystem.

When people closest to the work can define and measure what matters most, evidence building can become a powerful tool to improve outcomes for communities.

Consulting Partnerships

Project Evident partners directly with practitioners, funders, and policymakers at every stage of the evidence-building journey, from building Strategic Evidence Plans to assessing data and technology needs.
