Amplifying Success Through Intermediaries: An Evaluation of the Role of New Profit, Inc. in Supporting National College Access and Success Organizations

Dates: 2012 - 2016

RFA conducted a multi-year evaluation of New Profit’s federal Social Innovation Fund grant. Through it, New Profit served as an intermediary for six national college access and success organizations, including YouthBuild, Single Stop, Year Up, National College Advising Corps, College Summit, and iMentor. This mixed-methods study examined the unique influence of New Profit on the outcomes achieved by each of its six sub-grantee organizations throughout the duration of the SIF grant funding period. In particular, we tracked New Profit’s efforts to increase the capacity of the sub-grantee organizations and to foster collaborations across them.
