Are you making a difference? How do you measure your impact on the community? How can you evaluate your progress toward your mission? And how can you improve?

In today’s competitive nonprofit environment, organizations are competing for funding on different terms: it’s not who you know anymore…it’s what you can deliver. As a result, nonprofits are striving to demonstrate the impact they are having on the community.
