The Aspen Planning and Evaluation Program (APEP) helps our clients plan, assess, and refine their social change and policy advocacy efforts. We also offer a range of free planning and evaluation tools and provide practical advice on strategy, techniques and best practices. In particular, we help foundations, individual funders and nonprofit organizations:

  • plan for social and policy change success by thinking through where they want to go and how to know they are getting there.
  • distinguish between outputs and outcomes—the things they do and the results that matter;
  • evaluate what is working; and
  • do more of what works.
