In recognition of the vital role played by nonprofit and community organizations in the economic and civic life of the Commonwealth, the Dukakis Center is bringing its unique “think and do” research and problem solving approach to address the critical challenges facing nonprofit organizations today. The current economic downturn is posing hard choices and requiring tough decisions across the independent sector. By linking the application of multidisciplinary research and evaluation techniques to collaborative strategies of capacity building, the Center is helping to identify and implement practical solutions for the problems faced by nonprofit and community organizations.
In particular, the Dukakis Center is working with specific nonprofit clients to develop, improve and conduct outcome evaluation.
