- ABOUT US
VNA Foundation requires its grants to have measurable outcomes, or objective measures of the grant’s effect. By doing so, we believe we maximize the impact of our grant dollars. It also enables us to share with other nonprofits and foundations data-driven information about successful — or not so successful – approaches to assisting the medically underserved.
Be sure to create outcome measures that are reasonable and realistic, and based on information that will help you to best assess the impact and efficacy of your grant.
You will be asked to report on progress towards your outcomes when reporting to VNA, generally at the 6th and 12th month of your grant year.
