Houston Endowment, in collaboration with Communities Foundation of Texas, Episcopal Health Foundation, Hogg Foundation for Mental Health, Methodist Healthcare Ministries, Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, and St. David’s Foundation has issued a request for qualifications to engage a consultative partner to develop a collaborative strategy to further the field of equitable evaluation in Texas.

Evaluators from several philanthropies in Texas have come together to explore ways we can contribute to the development of a network of diverse practitioners and grow the field of equitable evaluation in Texas. The group aims to identify and invite evaluators with diverse lived experiences, students in training, those who are practicing evaluation that may not be using the term evaluation, those who call themselves evaluators, those who are entering the field, as well as those who are well equipped but may not be aware of the field of evaluation.
