You can download the webinar slides here and the additional resources here.

Have you ever been asked to provide evidence-based documentation for your funding proposals? Or used an evidence-informed approach? What is the evidence-level of your program, model, or services? More and more funders are asking for this information and knowing how to provide it can increase the success of your requests.

In this on-demand webinar, we do a deep dive into evidence-based programming, specifically what this means, and how your organization can demonstrate the evidence level of your program, model, or services. We also show how to deconstruct the programs, strategies, techniques of your organizations and tie them to evidence-based models or research-based strategies.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to effectively describe evidence, including sample language for funders, and programs not based on specific evidence-based models.
  • Examples of meaningful responses and how to tie anecdotal data with evidence-based research.
  • How to demonstrate modifications made to specific evidence-based models or research-based strategies.
  • Additional areas to cite evidence other than your program design.
