Mat- Su Community Assessment (1.4 MB PDF)
Working with members of the Mat-Su Agency Partnership, United Way leads the effort to quantitatively and qualitatively assess the health and human service needs of borough citizens. The final report, published every three-to-five years, provides important insight to government officials, businesses and non-profit organizations.
At the United Way of Mat-Su, we believe that evaluation is a method for not only measuring the impact we have on the community, but also for learning where we can improve our efforts.With this in mind, we would like to provide some evaluation resources for non-profits.
