Outcomes and Evaluations Overview:
Nonprofit leaders must be able to measure their organizations' performance to know what their actual impact is, inform decision making and guide organization improvement, properly deploy resources, and build a strong case for receiving funders’ support. This course is designed to provide nonprofit leaders with tools for deciding how to:

  • Clarify what their intended impact is and how they will achieve results
  • Identify the appropriate metrics to measure agency activities, outputs, and outcomes
  • Develop an evaluation plan to use and improve measurement over time
  • Develop and deploy data collection, analysis and reporting tools to monitor impacts and communicate results

In order to receive the Outcomes/Evaluations/Results Achievement Badge, the organization must submit the following items to UNA to be reviewed:

Evaluation Objectives
- A description of what you will measure to assess results and describe how you will use measurement data in practice throughout the organization.
Intended Impact and Theory of Change
- Develop a precise, concise articulation of your organization’s desired long- and near-term outcomes and the clients/beneficiaries you intend to serve. In addition, this will include a depiction of the resources, activities, and program elements required to achieve these outcomes.

This course is one of nine UNA Credential offerings. Each Credential course is designed to move your organization to the next level in adopting and following best practices--resulting in a vibrant, sustainable nonprofit. We encourage you to invite staff, volunteers, and board members to accompany you. Expanded participation broadens perspective, builds cooperation, and lightens the workload.
