Tuesday, April 25, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. (EST) to 11:30 a.m. (EST)
You work for an organization that’s trying to make an impact; the mission is your why. But when you talk with funders about your outcomes, you have trouble articulating the specific change you are creating. Many of us believe that our work matters. We see it in our communities, and we know our programs make a difference. Join us as we explore how to translate this impactful work into compelling- and measurable- outcome statements. This 90-minute workshop will provide content and opportunities to workshop outcomes from the perspective of a funder. Whether you are an expert or a beginner, you will walk away with at least a few new ideas for crafting compelling outcomes in your work.
