Peer learning event 

Budgeting for evaluation


Tuesday 11th October 2022, 10.00 am – 12.00 pm

This event is for:

This is a peer learning event for people in Scotland’s third sector with a role to lead evaluation in their organisation.  There will be opportunities for you to share experiences and trouble shoot challenges with your peers.   

About this event:

Evaluation doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive.  Often you can gather good evidence as part of day to day work.  But that doesn’t mean evaluation is totally free.  You might need funds for staff training, for a database or for some extra external help with data collection or analysis.  So where do you find those funds?  Can you build evaluation costs into funding applications?  Is the problem just about money or more about making time? 

This free peer learning event is for people in the third sector with good understanding of evaluation.  ESS is NOT a fundraising expert but we will share our experience of how to budget for evaluation and what funders might be prepared to support.  You will share your ideas and tips with each other. 

By the end of the morning we hope you will:  

  • Hear tips on how to budget for evaluation  
  • Have concrete ideas about how to address your own evaluation challenge  

At this event:

There will be a mixture of short input from ESS and discussions where you can share experiences and trouble shoot challenges with your peers.   

Please note this event is NOT a fundraising course.  It’s also NOT training and we won’t teach you how to write outcomes or design methods.  If you need that please check out Let’s Evaluate!   


We will be running this event via Zoom video conferencing. You will need a stable internet connection, webcam and microphone.
