Nonprofit fundraising relies heavily on your ability to both make and convey impact. Join us for a dynamic workshop designed to help you learn the ins and outs of program and fundraising measurement and analysis, starting with how to develop a measurement and evaluation plan, and then looking at how to integrate it into your overarching strategic plan. From there we’ll share tips and tools for fostering collaboration to promote effective analysis and review important distinctions between outputs and outcomes. You will also learn how to benchmark your performance and impact against others in your field, and create an organizational dashboard to track success against a series of “key performance indicators” that enable your staff, board, and key advisors to track your programmatic and operational health.

Join us and learn how to create a culture in your organization that values collecting both data and success stories, enabling you to translate your theory of change into practical metrics that can be monitored and optimized to fuel your performance and impact.

-The importance of measuring what matters to drive fundraising and program performance
-How to develop a measurement and evaluation plan and integrate it into your overarching strategic plan

In this SSIR Live! program, the second in our series on critical functions for nonprofits, our speakers will help you maximize engagement by your board of directors and ensure their full participation in the key aspects of their philanthropic activities for your organization: giving, asking, joining, and serving.

This highly practical workshop will feature concrete tips and tools designed to help increase your fundraising success by enabling your board to tap into their confidence and passion.  Learn how to engage your board in a process that clarifies exactly what’s expected of each member—one that creates consensus around board priorities and transforms board involvement.  Using Kay Sprinkel Grace’s “AAA” model, we will explore the power of board satisfaction and how it manifests in increased giving and outreach to others. We will also cover the critical importance of thinking of your board members and other loyal donor-investors as partners in your impact and work, and share tools for helping to integrate this philosophy successfully. Finally, we will provide tips and strategies for recruiting and evaluating board members to ensure that they understand their role in donor development and fundraising, whether as an Ambassador, an Advocate, and/or an Asker.

In this SSIR Live! program, you will learn:
-Tips for motivating and engaging every board member in donor and fund development
-How to create a culture of philanthropy throughout your organization
-How the “transformational” approach to donor relationships can be used to create lifelong supporters
-How to equip every board member with the messages and motivation needed to strengthen your organization.
