Benchmarks for a Better Vermont is a partnership of Marlboro College and Common Good Vermont, working together to stregthen the capacity of mission-driven organizations to lead significant, sustained improvements in the well-being of our communities.
Over the past several years, Results-Based Accountability has taken root in Vermont. It has become the go-to planning and evaluation framework for dozens of nonprofits, for United Ways and community coalitions, for private funders, state agencies, and the Vermont state Legislature. Benchmarks for a Better Vermont has been instrumental in this important culture change, offering training, coaching, and support to Vermont leaders as they gain the knowledge and tools to embed RBA in their own organizations.
