Message from the Chair
April 19, 2015
There are several ways to measure the effectiveness of an organization. Sometimes the public measures us on the percentage of budget spent on fundraising and administration costs, the number of people served per year, event attendance or even the number of acres protected. We even use these figures when we seek support or report on grants. But do these really measure the impact we have on our community?
Instead, we should measure how much better our members, clients, or our communities are as a result of our efforts – the outcomes of our work.
I hope you’ll join us next month as Dr. Bob Penna will be our speaker discussing the “outcomes approach” and how it can benefit your entire organization, not just a project or program.
