Selling Your Impact

Measuring Organizational Performance

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. This program will teach nonprofit leaders and board members why measuring performance is important, how to measure results in any type of organization, how to implement performance measurement within their organization, and how measurement can be linked to raising more money. Participants will learn from leading academics, practitioners and representatives from the funding community.

Upcoming Sessions

  1. Senior nonprofit executives and active board members responsible for shaping the direction, mission and programs of their organization
  2. Nonprofit CEOs,  Executive Directors and major program managers looking for new tools and approaches to make their organizations perform effectively
During this course, you will:

  1. Create a personalized measurement system to take back to your organization
  2. Learn how to get buy-in from your organization for measuring performance
  3. Identify social impact buyers for the outcomes at your specific nonprofit organization, leading to greater success in fundraising efforts

  1. Learn how to use your outcomes to create leverage with corporate and foundation funders
  2. Develop your own Success Equation to capture your impact
  3. Learn how to identify the funders most likely to support your organization
  4. Get an inside view of how funders are making grant decisions today
  5. Improve the success of your fundraising "pitch" through group exercises
