2016 Initial Steps to Building an Impact Measurement Program

Oweesta Corporation presents “Getting Your Board Engaged in the Fundraising Process,” This will be an interactive webinar to assist Native CDFIs better develop an Impact Measurement Program. Sweet Grass Consulting will utilize the Logic Model format and discuss the importance of a Logic Model for day-to-day decision-making and year-to-year goal setting. We will develop core competencies, outcomes, and indicators. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and make comments based on their own personal experiences and professional needs. Participants will leave the webinar knowing how to create core competencies, outcomes, and indicators for their own organizations.
