Demystifying Outcome Measurement: New Resources for Delaware Nonprofits
We all know that donors want to understand how their gift makes a difference in the community. More than ever, nonprofits are being asked to communicate the impact results of their programs and services. DANA in partnership with the Public Health Management Corporation have created a suite of resources to help Delaware nonprofits understand how to and ways to improve their outcome evaluation techniques. Resources include short “how to” videos, tip sheets, and self-assessment tools on evaluation processes. These resources are designed to help nonprofit leaders and staff understand the fundamentals of evaluating outcomes in a consistent and efficient manner.
This webinar will explain each resource, why it was created and answer questions about outcome evaluation. Sheila Bravo, DANA CEO, Allison Magagnosc, and Kelly Feighan will provide the overview and answer questions. The resources will be available on the DANA website a week in advance of the webinar.
- Raise awareness regarding outcome evaluations
- Gain knowledge and skills to conduct outcome evaluations
