Marcy Minton and Kallie Sulanke Attain Results-Based Accountability Professional Certification

Muncie, Ind. - The Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County is pleased to announce that Marcy Minton, Senior Program Officer, and Kallie Sulanke, Community Engagement Officer, have successfully achieved the Results-Based Accountability Professional Certification.

Results-Based Accountability (RBA) is a disciplined way of thinking and acting to improve complex social problems. It uses a data-driven decision-making process to help communities and organizations take action to solve problems. The Community Foundation first embraced (RBA) in 2017. Foundation board members and staff completed a practical training session in late 2019. To dive further into RBA and use the framework in Muncie and Delaware County, Minton and Sulanke began the certification process earlier this year.

The Results-Based Accountability Professional Certification Program from Clear Impact is an online training and certification course designed for individuals and organizations that want to master RBA principles. Participants deepen knowledge, enhance RBA implementation skillsets, and become better equipped to lead data-driven initiatives.

The Community Foundation has already begun to incorporate RBA principles into grantmaking and will encourage others to investigate and utilize the framework for larger community plans.
