The evaluation protocol for the Donner Awards is detailed in
the annual Non-Profit Performance Report, which is published
and distributed each year by the Fraser Institute.
The report provides an important reference for non-profit
organizations seeking to improve their performance and
efficiency. Agencies that have applied for the Donner Awards
each year can track their improvement as they advance towards
ever-higher levels of excellence and accountability. Many past
participants have even incorporated the Donner Awards
evaluation into their strategic planning processes.
For corporations, foundations, and individuals, the
Non-Profit Performance Report provides a useful tool to
evaluate the effectiveness of organizations competing for their
charitable dollars. Award recipients and finalists are profiled
in the report, along with a list of suggested resources to
improve non-profit performance.
