Common Outcomes Initiative
All funded agencies are asked to provide an outcomes report. Our team uses this data to share the impact of the funding in the community.
City of Edmonton FCSS in partnership with the United Way of the Alberta Capital Region, Edmonton and Area Child & Family Services Region and funded agencies have worked to develop common outcomes, indicators and tools that can be used by funded agencies to evaluate the programs that they are offering. This initiative has become known as the Common Outcomes Initiative.
The Common Outcomes Initiative has worked over the past 10 years with community agencies to co-develop common outcomes and indicators that all programs would use to report the impact of funding dollars in the community.
For 2019 reporting, the following Common Outcomes Initiative Model will be used by all agencies funded by one or more of the three partnering funders. This “new” model is a re-organization and clean up from the previous outcomes and indicators developed.
Edmonton FCSS funded agencies and partners can use the data from the Common Outcomes Reporting to: learn about their program successes and opportunities for growth, learn from other programs in the sector, share results with staff, volunteers and participants of the program, and use data and results to tell the story of their impact in the sector with other funders, donors and sponsors.
