Ohio-based Measurement Resources Company is hosting the “Achieving Impact and Excellence Two-Day Intensive” to help nonprofits learn how to use performance measurements as a tool for securing the funding they need to succeed.
Columbus, OH (August 2, 2013) The Blackbaud Index reports that charitable giving in the U.S. was down 1.1% during the first quarter of 2013. Faced with a national deficit of $16 trillion, nonprofit programs at all levels will likely continue to face severe cuts over the next four years, and only the highest-performing organizations will receive the funding they need to survive.
To help nonprofit agencies overcome these challenges, Ohio-based Measurement Resources Company is hosting the “Achieving Impact and Excellence Two-Day Intensive” on August 14 and 15, 2013 in Columbus, Ohio. This unique, two-day workshop event www.measurementresourcesco.com, being held at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Columbus–Worthington, is designed especially for nonprofit leaders and executives who struggle with using performance
measurements as a tool for securing the funding they need to ensure their success. Encouraged by the enthusiastic participation at a similar event in 2012, this year’s workshop will focus on
• Using data and outcomes to generate greater sources of funding
• Developing leadership skills required for success in the 21st century
• Building organizational structures that are the foundation of performance cultures
• Developing customized measures for accomplishing established goals
As a result of working with Measurement Resources, nonprofit clients have seen significant increases in their program success rate, grant renewals, and annual savings. Sheri Chaney Jones, president of Measurement Resources Company brings this same level of expertise to her workshops to teach participants how to improve their organizations through the use of performance management, evaluation and best practices.
Along with Jones, the Achieving Impact and Excellence workshop will include guest speakers Christy Farnbauch, Community Engagement Strategist with Strategic Links, LLC, and Kerri Mollard, a principal of Mollard Consulting. This trio of experienced professionals will make for a well-rounded leadership group.
When asked what the important takeaways would be for workshop attendees, Jones replied, “These are proven strategies and methods that we will be discussing, and participants will leave with very clear ideas of what they need to do to deliver highly impactful, efficient, and effective services. It will allow them to be better stewards of the dollars awarded to them, which will allow them to increase future funding opportunities and change lives at the same time.”
With the event being held in a central location such as Columbus, it will be more easily accessible to nonprofit leaders across the country.
