HELPING BUILD COMMUNITIES

A wide range of community organizations – large and small, local and international, promoting diverse objectives – have one thing in common: they’ve used the Community Check Box to measure and improve the effectiveness of their work. Whatever goal or initiative you’re working on, the Check Box provides the tools you need to keep everything on track.

YOUR PATH TO SUCCESS

You’ve worked hard to build your organization, create a plan of action and put that plan to work to achieve your goals. The Check Box helps you document that hard work, keep track of progress and measure your results.

TURN YOUR DATA INTO ACTION

Community Check Box is a smart, helpful, easy-to-use web-based tool to capture data that shows where and how well you’re progressing toward your goals. This process helps encourage participants to offer meaningful evaluations, promotes accountability and drives continual improvements in your work.

TELL YOUR STORY

Perhaps most importantly, Community Check Box makes it easy to pull together information to highlight your accomplishments. That gives you a solid basis to share your well-documented story both with your community and funders. The Check Box gives you an easy, credible way to share your efforts and results with others.

THE BUZZ ON COMMUNITY CHECK BOX

"I have used this tool to help more than 50 community coalitions tell their story and demonstrate outcomes. I could not have done it without the Check Box."
Paul Evensen
Senior Vice President, Strategic Initiatives, Wyman Center

"So much research and so many years of community practice have gone into the Community Check Box and it shows! An amazing tool that helps community leaders put science into their everyday practice."
Daniel Schober
Clinical Assistant Professor, Master of Public Health
Program, DePaul University

"Mobilizing your community to take action on daunting challenges is hard work. However, using the Community Check Box to track our progress on the Roadmap to a Healthier Douglas County has made that work easier. Sharing accomplishments and data across stakeholder groups is fundamental to our work and the Check Box makes it happen. It is hard to identify a decision that has been as impactful as using the Check Box."
Dan Partridge
Director, Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department
