About Me and My Work

What kinds of projects, tasks, or challenges do you typically partner with nonprofits on?
Partnering with Terra Dati enables nonprofits to make informed decisions that are grounded in inquiry. From community assessments to GIS mapping and focus groups, we help you collect, analyze, and apply data so that your programs reflect the assets and needs of your stakeholders. Our approach to evaluation ensures that you are measuring what matters most to the communities you serve and empowers you to crate a logic model and an evaluation plan so you can track progress and adapt your activities based on program performance. For organizations that are ready to build a learning agenda to increase your effectiveness, Terra Dati can help you develop a set of learning questions, strategies for answering your questions, and a plan for sharing what you learn to internal and external stakeholders.
Why would someone choose to work with you?
Terra Dati has over 14 years of experience working with mission-driven organizations to help them apply inquiry and learning to catalyze community-driven change. Our approach builds on our commitment to advancing equity and facilitates capacity building and empowerment. We are experts in action and participatory research methods that are grounded in an equity framework. These methods value lived experience, shared power, collaborative learning, and collective decision-making.
