Non-Profit Success Series

1) Tools for Impact Evaluation and Measurement Workshop Series – FALL 2019

  Often when non-profits provide products and services, they define their impact by the execution of services, how many people they have reached, how many products used or other quantifiable evidence of service delivered. But is that impact? Kravis Lab defines impact as the effect or influence of one person, thing, or action, on another. This program asks non-profits to see beyond the number of people they have reached, and explore and identify the existing ways in which they are transforming the lives of those people and/or their communities because of their interventions.

In the Fall of 2019, Kravis Lab will be offering a 4-workshop series, Tools for Research & Evaluation Design – Making the Case for Funding, to train local non-profit and community-based organizations to design and implement a research and evaluation strategy that evidences the impact of their missions. NPO/CBOs will learn a variety of tools for impact measurement, how to frame the story of their impact, and how to use it for influence, fundraising, recruitment and support. The final workshop will feature a funding panel who will help participants understand their funding evaluation criteria and guide them through developing a succinct framing of their impact strategy.
