Fairfax County Nonprofit

The consulting firm of Clifton Gunderson LLP was selected to carry out the Nonprofit Organizational Development Initiative, which was funded by the Fairfax County Department of Housing and Community Development. The overarching objective of the initiative was to ensure that nonprofit organizations receiving funding through the County`s Consolidated Community Funding Pool are capable of providing services in the most effective and efficient manner practicable. As the project approached its completion date, Clifton Gunderson asked the Center for Survey Research to assist them in evaluating the various aspects of the project, as well as its success in meeting the initiative`s overall objectives. The evaluation has two components: focus groups with a small number of initiative participants, and a web-based survey of executive officers of the targeted organizations.
