What is the Implementation Component of the RISE Partnership?

Jan 23, 2019

The Scattergood Foundation in conjunction with our partners have launched a three year initiative to help build the evaluation capacity for non-profits across the region. The  RISE Partnership has three different components: Readiness, Implementation, and Sustainability.

What is the goal of the RISE Partnership Implementation component?

The Implementation component is a two year cohort learning program that helps promising nonprofit organizations to amplify their impact on young people’s lives. Participating organizations will improve their capacity to collect, use, and apply data for ongoing improvement and learning to deliver even stronger results.

What does an organization receive if they are in Implementation component?

Consultation, training, technical assistance, coaching, and participation in an online learning community. All organizations that successfully complete this component will be invited into the sustainability component in year three and beyond.

What type of organizations are a good fit for the Implementation component?

– The organization should have been in operation for at least three years and have strong leadership and management capacity.

– The leader of the organization and 2-3 staff should plan to participate in the program.

– The organization should be committed to learning and open to rethinking elements of their programs.  This initiative is not for start-up organizations nor for organizations with long-standing intervention models that are not open for refinement.

– The organization should offer at least one program that serves young people (approximately ages 9-24) who are at significant risk (e.g., in foster care or transitioning out of foster care; involved in the juvenile justice system; risk for dropping out of school; engaging in high-risk behaviors; living in poverty or in neighborhood with high levels of community violence).  Priority will be given to organizations who serve youth with one or more risk factors.

– The organization should serve at least 150 of these youth per year and may aspire to reach more youth.

– Arts and culture, recreation, and organizations focused on well-being are invited to participate. The organization may be part of a broader coalition.

– The organization’s revenues should be approximately $750,000 or more during the most recent fiscal year.

– Innovative programs within larger local or regional organizations may apply if they are experimenting with a fresh approach or a new set of evidence-based practices to help youth and meet other criteria above.

– The implementation component will be by invitation only.  If your organization does not receive an invitation and you feel you meet these criteria, please contact us.

Is the Implementation component similar to the Building Evaluation Capacity Initiative?

Yes, the Implementation component is similar and we wouldn’t recommend your organization applying to the Implementation component if you have already completed the Building Evaluation Capacity Initiative. Your organization is eligible for the sustainability component.

How does an organization apply to the Implementation component?

The Implementation Component  is in invite only. If your organization was nominated and deemed ready for the Implementation component, you should have received an email with application instructions.

When is the Implementation component application due?

The Implementation Component application is due on March 1, 2019 at 5:00pm.
