Welcome to Facente Consulting’s Evaluation Resource Page: Toward Health Equity Oncology GrantTM (THE Oncology Grant)

Gilead Oncology Corporate Giving Program

Facente Consulting is working as the evaluation support team for Gilead Oncology’s Corporate Giving Program. In this role, we provide awardees with information, guidance, and technical assistance to help them tell the story about the impact of their programs. We’ll update this page regularly with recordings of trainings we offer, or resources that can help make evaluation tasks easier. Check back regularly!

Action Items & Timeline

  • Impact report template. Based on your feedback, you may use the option 1 or option 2 template that will help you prepare your interim and final impact reports. This is where you will share your two most impactful RBA measures, data to date, and your story behind the curve. You will also need to complete your interim and final reports in the SteepRock system. When it gets closer to your interim report date, your Facente Consulting liaison will reach out to you to provide support.

  • You will receive an email with a link that is specific to your grant. The email will come from The Facente Consulting Team (via Airtable), noreply+automations@airtableemail.com. This is NOT spam.
  • If you have more than one grant, you will receive an email for each grant.
  • When you click on the link in the email, the form should already have your agency name and grant number in it. If it does not, please contact us.
  • Everything else is the same – same questions, select three (one from each color group).
  • This is NOT a data report, and you do not need to submit any RBA data. The purpose of the quarterly snapshot is two-fold: 1) it will provide us information that can help with identifying future coffee chat topics and TA needs, and 2) since all snapshots will be shared with all the grantees from this FOA, it is an opportunity to see what others are doing, build connections based on common program efforts and challenges, and learn from each other.
  • Remember that these snapshots are intended to be brief – 3 to 5 sentences at most per question. This should be a low-effort, low-stress activity taking 20 minutes or less. You will be asked to provide answers to no more than 3 questions, which you will choose from the list below.

  • Choose 1 question from this group:
    • What are you learning?
    • What program successes or assets could you share with other grantees
    • How has your program demonstrated resilience?
  • Choose 1 question from this group:
    • Share something surprising or exciting that has happened with your program.
    • How have your collaborations enhanced your impact?
    • How is RBA implementation going?
  • Choose 1 question from this group:
    • What challenges are you experiencing?
    • What support do you need?
