The pressure is on. We get it.
The question has come up again: “What impact is your organization making?”
You’ve got big plans for moving your organization’s mission forward. Your communications and development teams need to highlight the big wins from last year. Catching the attention of funders and decision-makers means convincingly proving your impact. And, your Board wants to track progress going forward.
Talking about the value of your work should be pretty simple, right? After all, you don’t go to work everyday for the money.
You’ve worked hard to build strong donor relationships, and you know they still want to see the numbers. But, it’s so time consuming and it feels like starting from scratch each time. Why is program evaluation even part of your job?
What if there was a simplified approach to knowing and sharing your impact?We are and have created a model that other organizations have contacted us to replicate; we have a Strategic Plan for the future…the list goes on and on…” Kim Hyland, Executive Director, Fluvanna/Louisa Housing Foundation
