Welcome to the resource center where you’ll find tools, tips, and information about philanthropic giving.
Rodman & Associates offers our independent and rigorous nonprofit evaluations as a stand-alone service, providing you the insight you need to make educated and confident giving decisions.
Expert evaluations are especially critical if you’re a:
- current donor asked to consider a much larger gift
- business assessing several potential nonprofit partners
- current board chair or invited to join a nonprofit board of directors
- donor who knows one of your grantees needs operational improvements
Our PhD researchers dive deep into strategy, finance, leadership, and impact. The resulting assessment and recommendations illustrate the organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to inform your level of involvement.
