Program evaluations are a cornerstone of our approach to being a learning organization.

Evaluations at RWJF

In any given year, the Foundation conducts 30 to 40 program evaluations, accounting for a significant percentage of our overall grantmaking.

As with research grants, evaluation grants are quite diverse in size and scope. They range from small program assessments to multimillion dollar outcomes evaluations.

To aid our evaluators, we develop tools and other resources such as The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Evaluation Series that serve as guides for evaluators as they begin their assessment of Foundation programs.
