Logic models and strategic priorities/measurement frameworks – basic tools of evaluation – serve two important purposes. First, they are a mechanism of accountability. By having organizations articulate the connections between what they do, why they do it, and what difference they intend to make (the logic model), and by having the organizations provide a scorecard of their progress in meeting key outcomes (the strategic priorities/measurement framework), the Foundation is able to ensure that it is awarding grants responsibly and in a manner that supports the core values of its founders. Second, the logic model and strategic priorities/measurement framework are powerful learning tools for all nonprofit organizations.
