About Results-Based Accountability (RBA)

RBA is a disciplined way of thinking and acting to improve entrenched and complex social problems. Communities use it to improve the lives of children, youth, families, adults. RBA can be used by organizations to improve the effectiveness of their programs and as a framework for grantmaking and community leadership. RBA starts with the ENDS in mind, and then works backwards to MEANS. This approach focuses on the community-level conditions of well-being that leaders are agreeing to be accountable for achieving, and then uses common sense steps to organize collective action to make a positive impact. By building capacity to utilize RBA concepts in their internal and external activities, participating foundations will be better positioned lead and support collective efforts to solve complex challenges.
