Funders are increasingly asking organizations to go beyond talking about what they do to explain why it matters--what difference are these programs and services making in the community? How can funders know that their grants and donations are creating a positive change?
"Outcome measurement" is more than a buzzword, and tracking and using outcomes well is critical to the health and reputation of an organization. Unfortunately, it can also seem like one more demand on organizations that don't have systems in place or trained staff for capturing this information. Through this training, Charitable Allies and Prosperity Indiana will help you understand how to measure and demonstrate your effectiveness through outcome measurement. By the end of the afternoon, you'll understand what outcomes are, their importance for improving and growing programs, and which outcomes are most important to your organization. We'll also address some of the challenges associated with outcomes measurement and tools or strategies for overcoming these in a small organization.
