Assessing Our Impact

At the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF), we strive to foster a culture of inquiry. While this often involves evaluating the outcomes of individual grants and initiatives, we are also committed to assessing our programs and the foundation as a whole. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we reflect on lessons we have learned, share the results with others, and integrate that learning into future grantmaking.

Foundation-Wide Assessment

Program Assessment

To help with ongoing evaluation of our work, each of CHCF's programs has defined specific objectives and outlined strategies. Details regarding key projects, accomplishments, and next steps are also available. See:

Project Evaluations

CHCF commissions independent evaluations of projects when there are opportunities to learn, contribute to the field, or inform our grantmaking. The results of CHCF-funded evaluations are shared publicly as part of our commitment to assessment, learning, and transparency. See the projects with completed evaluations.


CHCF welcomes suggestions to improve our performance; please contact the CHCF Evaluation Staff with your thoughts.
