Oct. 28: Growing Resiliency Nonprofit Strengthening Webinar Series Part 3: Outcomes Thinking & Management

In this Third Installment of our Nonprofit Strengthening Virtual Training Series, we feature a VIRTUAL LIVE WORKSHOP by Candid:
“Outcomes Thinking & Management: Shifting Focus from Activities to Impact”

Workshop Description: Funders increasingly want to invest in a nonprofit’s impact, not activities–especially in times of crisis like our trying COVID-19 era. In this in-depth, three-hour workshop, learn how your nonprofit can develop frameworks for tracking the outcomes and impact of your work, and how to successfully articulate that to funders. Learn to create your own logic model as the outcome framework for program management, grant proposals and stakeholder communications. This workshop is ideal for fundraising and development staff, grant writers at all levels of professional development, program directors and program staff.
