Measuring What Matters: How to Prove Your Nonprofit Is The Real Deal!
Demand is growing for nonprofits to provide proof to donors that what they’re doing actually accomplishes mission. Unfortunately, many nonprofits just don’t have the data properly tracked to show that their outcomes are worth supporting.
Experts say even the smallest nonprofit needs to place emphasis on measuring impact and outcomes, and reporting both with transparency. However, understanding what this means, and how to do it right can be difficult and confusing.
In this session we will:
Review the necessary jargon around outputs & outcomes
Discuss how to be proactive in crafting your results
Explore strategies to track and determine outcomes
Look at how to leverage your data to put your nonprofit in context
At the end of the session, you will be better able to show your donors, grantors, staff and supporters that your success is the real deal!
