Impact Evaluation - Impact matters. Data matters. But data is only meaningful if it is used to meet your goals. Our team has extensive experience in both qualitative and quantitative methods to help our clients demonstrate the impact of projects or programs or policies. We bring a host of diverse analytical tools and data collection methods:
- Focus Group
- Key informant interviews

These can help you demonstrate continued accountability to funders, donors, elected and appointed officials and to the broader community served. Data is only meaningful to folks if they can understand what it means to them personally. Our passion is for translating and communicating complex data and ideas in a meaningful way to diverse audiences.
Strategic Philanthropy - We here at Ersoylu recognize that anyone can be “doing good”. Although most of us think of NGOs, foundations and local government agencies as the most direct service providers, innovations in the business community, as well as increasingly savvy donors, have led to recent strengthening philanthropy nationwide. However, we recognize that more work must be done to ensure that these “good” efforts are well-planned, with clear and measurable outcomes.
