RISE Partnership Summer 2019 Newsletter
Ready, Set, RISE!

We had an excitingly busy summer...

Summer Consultations: Over the course of the summer, our RISE Partnership consultants have been working with the Implementation cohort organizations through one-on-one sessions focused on their evaluation capacity planning and logic models for their chosen programs. Consultants will continue to work with organizations throughout the year and are slated to continue the trainings and related consultation with the Readiness cohort this fall.

RISE Partnership Canvas: Recently, we launched the RISE Partnership Canvas platform to the Readiness and Implementation cohorts. We're excited to use this platform to share resources, engage organizations, and develop an online community for all participating organizations across the RISE Partnership. We look forward to launching Canvas to the Sustainability cohort, including all BECI alumni, later this month.

RISE Partnership Video: We can't wait to share the official RISE Partnership video highlighting our funders, participating organizations, and the amazing work we do together. We're so thankful for everyone's support and participation in the process. Stay tuned for the debut this September.

Finally, planning for the upcoming RISE Partnership Readiness Learning Session on September 9th, and the RISE Partnership Implementation Learning Session on September 10th are underway. Please remember to RSVP by September 6th using the link in the invitation you received. For any questions, contact us below. We look forward to seeing you there!

RISE Partnership SCRA Presentation

Earlier in June, RISE Partnership along with The Consultation Center at Yale presented at the Society for Community Research and Action Biennial Meeting.
The SCRA meeting brings together over 700 community-based researchers, practitioners, and evaluators from all over the world to share new approaches to promoting social justice, equity, and positive systems change. This year, Jack Tebes and Samantha Matlin shared some of the work of the BECI and RISE teams in the Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey region to build evaluation capacity so as to strengthen nonprofit organizations for collective impact. In addition to summarizing elements of the Readiness, Implementation, and Sustainability components of the program that help build a sustainable evaluation culture in each organization, they described the work of the new funders' collaborative that was established in the transition from BECI to RISE that is intended to effect systems change in the region to sustain evaluation capacity.

Thank you to our funders!
