With the aid of Results-Based AccountabilityTM, Benchmarks for a Better Vermont helps nonprofits answer three transformational questions about their operations:

  • How much are we doing?
  • How well are we doing it?
  • and – most critically for all of us – Is anyone better off? 

Results-Based Accountability is a planning and evaluation framework developed by Mark Friedman, field-tested in Vermont, and outlined in Mark’s classic book Trying Hard is Not Good Enough. Over the past 15 years, dozens of Vermont nonprofits and state agencies have found RBA a powerful, effective tool.

With a results-based approach, top-notch training modules, and a cadre of committed trainers and coaches, Benchmarks for a Better Vermont strengthens the nonprofit sector’s capacity to make significant, sustained improvements in the well-being of Vermont communities and individuals.
