    Good article. As a practicing evaluator, I was glad to see you using many of the strategies and techniques we find so useful in our evaluations as well. Nonprofit quarterly does not do much writing on evaluation but this should be very helpful to their readers.

    Superb article. I would emphasize comparability even more, using well developed, standardized metrics. Additional to the foundation improving its processes and strategies based on outcomes, it is important to offer assistance to the grantees to also achieve important improvement. The introduction of continuous quality improvement methodologies would be a helpful addition. Finally, it would be useful to follow up this article with published reports on outcomes of their grantees that may be generalized to a larger cohort of organizations nationally.
