“The wonderful thing about RECO is that it shatters the myth that you can’t know if a community organizing grant is going well. No one can say that anymore because of these resources.” – David Beckwith, former director of the Needmor Fund
Resources for Evaluating Community Organizing (RECO) is a compendium of resources related to evaluating community organizing. RECO is designed to help organizers, funders, and evaluators quickly and easily find the resources to help them learn what is working and what is not.
RECO connects you with case studies, tools and methodologies, and theoretical approaches to evaluation. Many are available for free online or by mail. Some are available for a fee.
