At TCC Group:
  • John S. and James L. Knight Foundation: A nonprofit that promotes journalism, media innovation, and arts, the Foundation sought to shift its funded organizations from print to digital. Charles conducted a landscape analysis to show where their funded organizations were in the process of this transition. He developed organizational change metrics allowing the Foundation to better understand its programs, shed insight on the right questions to ask, and modify programming.
  • Project Management Institution Educational Foundation: Charles worked with the Project Management Institution Educational Foundation (PMIEF) to better articulate and assess a program that provides high school students with the project management skills needed to achieve better grades and intentionally go to college. Using his clarified program theory, questions, models, and markers of success for the students, the PMIEF board could clearly see the impact of their programs.
  • Wisconsin Public Television: Charles led an evaluation focus for Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) to guide the development of data gathering and analytic tools. The partnership resulted in WPT improving their ability to better articulate the motivation behind programming, monitor the intended results, and demonstrate their effectiveness and impact to community stakeholders.
Before TCC Group:
  • Nine Network: Charles led Nine Network’s framework for impact and the evaluation efforts for one of their nationwide campaigns. Charles also provided capacity-building support to public media television stations across the United States.
  • Missouri Foundation for Health: Charles oversaw over $3 million in evaluation contracts and developed a revised method by which the Foundation sought and assessed grant applications. During his time at the Missouri Foundation for Health, Charles helped the Foundation shift toward an outcomes-focused grant strategy—clarifying foundation-wide objectives, programmatic objectives, and learning opportunities.
