Fundamental Building Blocks of Finance-PART 2-Measuring Impact to Tell Your Story

The Bucks-Mont Collaborative in partnership with Bee, Bergvall & Co.

March 17, 2020
9:00 am-11 am

There is no cost for the training, but registration is required

Location: Montgomery Township Community Center
1030 Horsham Rd., Montgomeryville PA

In partnership with the Catalyst Center for Nonprofit Management, the Bucks-Mont Collaborative is pleased to present Part 2 of 2  of our workshop on  organizational finances. The financial function is foundational to the health and stability of any organization.

Your funders want to know that their donation makes a difference.   Your team wants to know that the work they are doing truly changes lives.  Stories are compelling and engaging ways to communicate your impact.  Story plus data will amplify your message.    But data can do more than inform, it can also transform.   You can use data to advance your organization.  In this session we will:

  • Identify how to measure both tangible and intangible impact
  • Explore Key Performance Indicators
  • Look at examples of how organizations are using Key Performance Indicators to advance
  • Share examples of dashboards
  • Discuss how best to report to your funders
  • Learn how to tell your story with data

REGISTER NOW

This training is close to capacity.  Registrants MAY be placed on a waiting list.  A second session is being planned in Bucks County for later in April.  Keep an eye on our Training & Events page for updates

Advanced Track ~ for individuals who have experience serving for many years or on a variety of boards and are looking to gain insight on the tools used by more mature boards.
