RISE Partnership

The RISE Partnership (Readiness, Implementation, Sustainability for Effectiveness) was launched in 2019, and is an effort to strengthen the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations in the Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey region. The RISE Partnership builds on BECI (the Building Evaluation Capacity Initiative) that has been working with organizations over the past eight years. RISE will continue to provide a range of capacity building services: training and support to build readiness for measuring and driving program outcomes; implementation of an intensive program of internal evaluation capacity building, and support for an alumni learning community to sustain and extend gains achieved. The overall objective of these services and supports remain the same: increased organizational effectiveness and improved outcomes for participants.

The RISE Partnership is based on the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation’s PropelNext program and The Scattergood Foundation’s Building Evaluation Capacity Initiative, which was developed and implemented in partnership with our YaleEVAL team.

The RISE Partnership is supported by a collaborative of funders that includes the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, The Scattergood Foundation, the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, Campbell Soup Foundation, The Horner Foundation, the Barra Foundation, The Philadelphia Foundation, and The Grace S. and W. Linton Nelson Foundation. Training and consultation is provided through The Consultation Center at Yale and The Scattergood Foundation.
