    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.

    Upon completion of this workshop you should be able to:

    • Describe outcomes thinking and how it differs from other approaches to program planning and management
    • Apply an outcome mindset to your organization’s programs, projects, and grants
    • Create a logic model as the outcome framework for program management, grant proposals, and stakeholder communications

    With the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, we know it’s a challenging time for everyone. To support your work and ensure our trainings are more accessible during this difficult time, we’re offering this program at an early-bird price of $49 – half of the standard cost. The price increases to $99 on November 5, 2021.

    Join us to learn practical strategies for better engaging your board in fundraising. In this hands-on virtual workshop, we’ll cover boards’ typical fundraising responsibilities, why some board members may be reluctant to fundraise, and how to overcome these concerns. We will also brainstorm new ways your board members can participate in fundraising activities and will share tips for strengthening your board and aligning on fundraising priorities. Whether you’re an executive director, board member, or development professional, this course will help you plan for your organization to fundraise better as one team.
