HOW IS THEORY OF CHANGE ON ITS FEET™
DIFFERENT FROM THE TRADITIONAL LOGIC MODEL?
A tool that guides you to define and report the impact you’ll make in the world!
OUR FIRST CONCERN
Instead of rooting an evaluation in logic, tied to impact…
We recommend defining an evaluation integrated with a theory of change, because that’s tied to outcomes.
Outcomes can be predicted and actually achieved!
The problem is, rarely can any program, on its own, achieve
Here we propose
to our funders that certain RESOURCES
will enable implementation of certain PROGRAM ACTIVITIES
Let's say in five years!
OUR NEXT CONCERN
A traditional logic model describes the goals of an organization; it does not put them into action.
Wouldn't it be slightly spectacular for your Theory of Change to be your guiding light, as you bring your goals to life?
Theory of Change On Its Feet™ does it all:
It guides you to envision the fullness of your long-term potential impact, and sharpen measurable, near-term, direct outcomes. The best part is: you then use the tool
to actually track against theory and report what happened.
IT'S NOT ONLY A LOGIC
MODEL THAT IS ESSENTIALLY A DREAM.
IT'S NOT A TYPICAL THEORY
OF CHANGE THAT IS USED TO PLAN
AND THEN SITS ON THE SHELF.
IT CAPTURES YOUR THEORY
IT KEEPS YOU FOCUSED TO PUT YOUR
PLAN ON ITS FEET AND MAKE IT REAL.
AND, IT TALLIES RESULTS SO YOU CAN
REPORT ON WHAT YOU PROMISED!
guides you to:
1. Clarify Vision
2. Focus outcomes
3. Present a compelling case for support to your funders, and
4. Tally and report results over time!
Your funders will see both
your strategy and results in one dynamic evaluation framework.

SEED Impact made it possible (and really easy!) for us to evaluate our work.
“SEED helped us quantify the social – emotional growth of youth in our programs and compare the impact of different interventions. All this while simplifying data collection and reporting!”

“The team at SEED has worked patiently and collaboratively to tailor their tools to the unique needs of our program and our population. Because of our partnership, we now have data that speaks to the growth of the youth that we serve and our program's expansion since our inception … SEED has helped us lay a foundation that will take our program's growth to the next level, and we couldn't be more grateful for their support.”
