Numbers Tell a Story: Measuring and Communicating Success and Impact

THURSDAY 10:45 AM – 12:00 PM | Evaluation & Impact – Oak Room

Measuring the effectiveness and impact of our work is not easy, but we owe it to the communities we serve to do it well. However, measuring is just the first part. It is the responsibility of the National Fund and its collaboratives to weave together data and storytelling to communicate impact to major stakeholders. In this workshop, we learn how a national nonprofit, YearUp, and the CareerEdge collaborative in Sarasota, Florida, approach the measurement and communication of scale and impact to stakeholders.
