Celebrating 65 Years!
As part of the foundation’s continuous learning objective, Board member Dr. Mario Hernandez led Conn’s Board and staff developing its very first Theory of Change over seven years ago. This is a methodology that defines and describes long-term goals and then illustrates a plan for achieving the desired results. We revisit and rework our Theory of Change on a regular basis. Going through this challenging process has been a game-changer for our foundation. We see it is a dynamic document. It has life. It flows backwards, but advances forward as it stays true to its “pathways to change” by providing Board and staff a valuable tool that encourages innovation, strengthens grant making and collaboration, and allows us to evaluate and measure progress to learn and improve.
