  • Developing metrics and language for a grant proposal
  • Developing indicators for hard to measure outcomes
  • Developing metrics for your organization's strategic plan
  • Assistance with data collection and analysis
  • Consulting on communicating findings to funders, clients, and other stakeholders
  • Consulting on using evaluation findings to improve your programs or strategies
  • Providing evaluation trainings or workshops for your staff

ERC Partners

The Foundation recruits evaluation consultants and groups, known as ERC Partners, throughout Georgia to work with grantees and other health nonprofit organizations. ERC Partners submit statements of capabilities to the Foundation demonstrating capacity to work with health nonprofits in Georgia. The Foundation may commission directly, or request proposals from ERC Partners to evaluate programs, organizations, or initiatives funded by the Foundation. The ERC also offers to health nonprofits or grantees the ability to procure an ERC Partner if the organization lacks evaluation capacity and is seeking an evaluator.

The Foundation currently has 17 ERC Partners throughout Georgia, consisting of both private and academic institutions. If you would like to learn more about procuring an ERC Partner below, please contact Samantha Bourque Tucker, Evaluation Manager, at 404.653.0990 or email
