Funders increasingly want to invest in a nonprofit’s impact not activities. In this workshop, learn to shift your nonprofit organization's focus and communication tactics from activities to outcomes. We will discuss and learn how nonprofit organizations can develop frameworks for tracking the outcomes and impact of their work, and how to successfully articulate that to funders. This will be a hands-on session and participants will have the opportunity to identify outcomes for their own project or program, and will create their own logic model.
At the end of the workshop you will be able to:
• Understand outcome thinking and how it differs from other approaches to program planning and management
• Apply an outcome mindset to your organization’s programs and projects
• Create a logic model as the outcome framework for program management, grant proposals, and stakeholder communications
This class is most suitable for beginner- to intermediate-level professionals.
This class is eligible for 3 CFRE credits.
