Funders expect nonprofits to achieve outcomes. The future success of most nonprofit organizations will be determined by their ability to demonstrate that they have achieved outcomes and made an impact. CNM’s evaluation consulting services can help nonprofits achieve greater program efficiency and effectiveness. With a valid evaluation methodology that incorporates best practices, CNM provides clients with a comprehensive toolkit and program evaluation system.

Our Approach to Services

  • Practices aligned with the American Evaluation Association standards
  • Comprehensive assessment to determine evaluation readiness
  • Fully customized evaluation services that are based on organization’s needs and resources rather than a one-size-fits-all approach
  • Collaborative process of designing and implementing evaluations that are practical and doable with limited staff and financial resources

CNM received a $50,000 grant from the Program on Philanthropy and Social Innovation at the Aspen Institute and JPMorgan Chase & Co. CNM worked with six nonprofits focused on ending poverty through workforce readiness and affordable housing, to build their program evaluation capacity across a shared measurement system.

CNM launched CNM-pact® in early 2017 after the completion of a successful pilot program with eight DFW nonprofits. This video showcases the pilot participants and impact that CNM-pact is having on their organizations.


“We have been pleased with CNM-pact technology services and third-party evaluation services for our Camp Fire School Readiness Program. CNM has worked with us to improve our data monitoring and tracking system in order to enhance the quality of our outcome data. Through this process, we’ve been able to streamline data collection and review information more quickly enabling us to address trends immediately instead of waiting until the end of year program analysis has been completed.”
