Not-for-profits have a positive impact in our communities.

In an effort to further strengthen the not-for-profit sector, Health in Common is providing pro bono planning and evaluation services. Pro bono services can include facilitating stakeholder engagement, developing a strategic plan or evaluating an initiative.

Health in Common is a not-for-profit organization that provides planning and evaluation services on a fee-for-service basis. Grounded in years of community based experience, Health in Common’s knowledge and skills provide a practical, capacity building approach to planning and evaluation.

Does your work help create healthy communities?
Are you working within and across sectors to strengthen impact?
Does your work address community-identified issues?
If the answer is yes to one or more of these questions,
you may be eligible for free services.
For more information please visit our Pro Bono Planning and Evaluation Services page.
The deadline is January 11th, 2017.


Join us for our final Executive Directors’ breakfast of on February 16th! You will have the opportunity to speed network and exchange ideas around strengthening capacity for evaluation. There are a few spaces available — register today.

Don’t forget! Each time you attend a breakfast, your name will be entered into a draw for up to two days of Health in Common services. The draw will be made at the last breakfast on February 16th, 2017.
