Who Else Is Working on This Topic?

Want to find out who's behind impact evaluation in the social sector? Try out our "Key Players" tool. It surfaces the evaluators, funders, and implementers that played a role in the evaluations found in this collection, and shows how they worked together to do evaluation.

It all starts with a search. Perform a search on Find Results. Behind the scenes, we'll check whether the documents in your search result have explicitly defined evaluators, funders, and/or implementers.* When that's the case, you get a visualization of the connections. Just click the "View Connections" button.

The tool is designed to help you understand who's funding the types of work you are interested in, who can help you do an evaluation, and who works on the issues that matter to you.

Don't see your organization represented in visualizations? Upload your evaluation and we'll include you!


* The Key Players tool needs at least one dyad (an evaluator and a funder, or a funder and an implementer, or an evaluator and an implementer) linked to a document to draw relationships.
