Coaching + Capacity Building for Social Good

You know your program.

We know data.

Let’s tell your story.

Do you…

 

  • Feel overwhelmed by the amount of data you collect?
  • Think time spent on data is preventing you from providing your services?
  • Have data stored across multiple systems?
  • Wonder if you’re collecting the right data?
  • Need to report outcomes to your board or funder?
  • Want to tell a more meaningful story about your program?

Imagine if you could…

 
  • Simplify the amount of data you collect
  • Develop customized, realistic, meaningful, and sustainable data tools and strategy
  • Create data analysis and reporting structures that add instead of distract from your work
  • Reduce the time it takes to make data-informed decisions
  • Communicate your effectiveness to your funders, board, and partners

You are ready to move from confusion to clarity.

Data is messy!

But that doesn’t mean that data has to be confusing.

Clients often contact us looking for a quick-fix solution like a dashboard or a new database, when what is really needed is data and evaluation capacity building.

Working together, we teach you how to align what you do with the goals you are trying to achieve so that you can make data-informed decisions and do your good work even better.

Welcome, I’m Elizabeth Grim!

 

I’m a puzzle, book, and nature loving evaluation consultant.

I strive to build community, promote social justice, and challenge the status quo.

I believe that data is a tool for building more complete and equitable communities.

I help organizations move from insight to action to make informed decisions and tell your story.

And of course, we have a lot of fun along the way.

“We worked with Elizabeth on the planning, implementation, and evaluation of ALX Cares, a program in Alexandria, VA that distributed more than $2.5M in grocery gift cards to families that lost income due to COVID-19. The program required significant data management and Elizabeth was an invaluable advisor and guide as we set up the data systems. She also worked with community partners on data collection and reporting in ways that eased burdens and helped build trust. Elizabeth’s final report succinctly captured key insights and program achievements so that we could make a compelling case for continued investment in the program.“

“Elizabeth is not only a well-trained and experienced evaluator, but she is also a conscientious professional with a deep commitment to equity and justice. We were very fortunate to have her as a consultant on our child protection projects. She exceeded our expectations in completing her assignments – the deliverables were complete, accurate, well thought-out, and on time.”
