The Evaluation Declaration

We worked with the SFF to produce The Evaluation Declaration. This has 5 statements that describe why monitoring, evaluation and reporting are important and what they should achieve. Funders are saying they believe evaluation is valuable, relevant, proportionate, supported and involves looking from the inside and outside at our work. 

The Evaluation Declaration Health Check Tool

The 'Evaluation Declaration' health check tool helps funders think about the way they undertake monitoring and evaluation and their relationships with funded organisations. The Evaluation Declaration health check tool and the guidance for this tool are free for you to download. The tool and guidance reflects the learning from Harmonising Reporting. Please contact us if you are a funder and would like support to use this tool.
