The Community Fund of Darien

The Community Fund of Darien has aligned our outcome measurement requests with the “results-based accountability” model. All grant recipients are asked:

  1. Quantity: How much will you do?
  2. Quality: How well will you do it?
  3. Impact: Will anyone be better off?
