Evaluations at RWJF
Program evaluations are a cornerstone of our efforts to learn from our work. In any given year, the Foundation conducts between 30 to 40 active program evaluations, accounting for about 5 percent of our annual 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.
