Donors today want to support groups that demonstrate they are bringing about lasting change. That's especially true of grant makers.
Yet charities often fail to convey their impact when submitting a grant proposal. Measuring long-term results requires skills and resources and it can be difficult to know which types of outcomes grant makers want to see, or which metrics best show results.
Join the Chronicle for a one-hour session to learn how to gather compelling evidence of your nonprofit's effectiveness and weave that into stories that resonate with foundation decision makers.
Jamie Austin, director of impact and learning at a foundation that helps grantees develop systems for measuring results, will share key criteria for what to measure as well as tips and tools for collecting and presenting useful data.
Plus, you'll learn from Alex Saingchin, program director at Common Counsel Foundation, who will explain how to tailor your proposal to different grant makers and blend data and stories for optimal results.
