EBI: Measuring for Success: Program Evaluation Session I of II

April 24 @ 9:15 am - 12:30 pm EDT

This workshop is a requirement for the Certificate in Nonprofit Management. Please note that you must attend both days of the workshop to receive full credit.

 

How do you demonstrate the impact of your efforts? How does your organization leverage data and analytics to tell its impact story? Please join us for Measuring for Success, where you will learn how to develop and implement a strategic and actionable Evaluation Plan—one that will help you create operational efficiencies, better understand the return on your investments and achieve strategic business goals.

Nonprofit staff work diligently to address today’s most pressing social challenges. They provide the best programs, products and services, in hope of improving the lives of those they serve. In today’s competitive funding environment, sophisticated funders require evidence that grantees are leveraging funding dollars by operating efficiently and effectively and achieving maximum impact. How do we know our efforts are working and how do we demonstrate this to funders?

Day 1: Outcome Based Evaluations Process 

What is the value of incorporating evaluation into your organization’s operations? How can you be a catalyst in establishing practices, policies and procedures that will allow your organization’s staff to demonstrate the impact of their social change efforts? In this session, you will learn about evaluation theory, terms, processes and tools.

Day 2: Measuring Your Programs

How do you decide what is important to measure? What are the best ways to capture that data? What are the best ways to use that data for learning, strategic planning and fundraising? This session will focus on identifying what to measure, methods for data collection and best practices in communicating your impact.
