Evaluation of Kessler Foundation Signature Grant Grantee

Since 2007, the Heldrich Center has served as the primary evaluator for the Kessler Foundation, performing regular evaluations of the Foundation’s Signature Grant Program grantees. The Center is using tested evaluation approaches designed to provide feedback to the Kessler Foundation on the effectiveness of the grant programs in meeting their stated goals and to provide feedback to grantees about the best ways to establish and manage their programs in order to maximize the probability that people with disabilities will be employed upon program completion. The Heldrich Center is currently evaluating 11 grantees. (Funded by the Kessler Foundation)
