Designing Metrics for Program Evaluation

We’re online! This course will be presented online through Zoom. All registrants will receive the access link and password via email before the event.

A course to help nonprofit professionals better understand & evaluate program impact

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.

This session will cover:

  • The importance of program evaluation
  • How to develop your own evaluation tools
  • How to embed evaluation metrics into your systems for sustainability
