You know that your organization’s programs are great, but how do you help others understand your impact? Thoughtful program evaluation can help you successfully share your impact with funders, donors, volunteers, and your board. It can also help you design programs to draw a larger audience to your mission.
Evaluation doesn’t have to be overwhelming. There are practical tools and strategies available that can help you integrate evaluation into your programs. This session will help you learn how to identify the questions you want to ask and the data you need to collect to effectively evaluate your programs.
Participants will learn:
The importance of program evaluation
What types of evaluation are most helpful to your organization’s need
How to develop evaluation tools for your organization
How to embed evaluation metrics into your systems for sustainability
