Who We Are

Rainbow Research is committed to improving the effectiveness of socially concerned organizations.

Rainbow Research has over 40 years
of experience conducting a wide array
of local, regional and national research and evaluation projects.

We believe every evaluation should
be useful to all stakeholders and should
build capacity, not merely judge the
merit or worth of programs and efforts.


We have earned a reputation for working with diverse communities and organizations using culturally appropriate research methodologies.

Known for our participatory approach, we work closely with clients to design evaluations that meet their needs and are suited to their audiences.

Our culturally diverse staff members are experts in design and implementation of multi-level multi-site evaluations, and they are dedicated fully to meeting client needs. As an intentionally small and agile organization, we partner with a cadre of partners and technical experts to deliver the right blend of expertise for each project.
