As part of this project, Doug McCarthy will continue his role as senior research advisor to the Fund’s ROI Calculator. He will work in collaboration with the Nonprofit Finance Fund (the grantee leading phase 2 of the ROI Calculator) to: produce two case studies of organizations that have used the calculator to support the development and evaluation of cross-sector partnerships; write an issue brief that synthesizes learning among sites participating in a collaborative about the utility of the calculator for lowering long-term costs and improving outcomes; develop a plan for collecting data and evaluating actual-versus-expected ROI results; and provide other support and advice for the ROI Calculator project and other Fund program needs.
