NEEDS & STRENGTHS ASSESSMENTS

Need to know what direction to go in?


Partnerships for Strategic Impact™ collects data to build your case for change, create a sense of urgency, understand community need, plan what to do next, develop a program, and determine your impact.

We’ll get answers.

 

We offer the full range of data, design, and program development services:

  • We design needs assessments that are streamlined and tailored to your specific needs.
  • We create surveys and other data collection tools for highest quality data.
  • We collect data from your customers or the community.
  • We mine data from publicly available national, state, and local sources (there are a lot of them!).
  • We are experts in data visualization so your data speaks for itself.
  • We create custom dashboards so you can track your progress.
  • We put your data to work by providing consultation or coaching in helping you make a case for fundraising, writing grants, as well as to drawing conclusions and developing action plans that get you closer to your desired impact.

Direction. Inspiration. Momentum.

Evaluations can be targeted or comprehensive. Here are some examples of our work:

 

We conducted the Culpeper Youth Interest and Needs Assessment which was developed to guide the Culpeper Wellness Foundation’s investments in youth related initiatives and for community use to inform conversation and action on youth recreation.

We conducted the first-ever Regional Nonprofit Compensation and Benefits Report — a tool to guide the nonprofits in the Charlottesville and Richmond  in promoting fair and equitable compensation within organizations and across the sector. The survey was conducted for the Center for Nonprofit Excellence and the Community Foundation for a greater Richmond.

We have been the proud evaluator for the Charlottesville City of Promise since its inception. Recently, we completed a second comprehensive neighborhood assessment that has been used to identify impact and set the next priorities for programming and development. See a summary of the results here.

We completed a comprehensive gang assessment for Charlottesville and Albemarle Police GRACE Task Force that set the stage for a coordinated prevention effort. See the full report here.
