Who, Me?

by Ellen Mowrer

When you see requests for survey participation, do you think "who, me"? Followed by 1) I don't have the time, 2) my input makes no difference, 3) why should I bother? Every retailer, organization, and media platform seem to be asking for your survey participation, and some even offer prizes for participation. Now, along comes GrantStation, asking for your participation in the annual State of Grantseeking™ Survey. It isn't a short survey, we don't offer prizes for participation, and the benefit to you may not be clear. So why should you take part in the 2020 State of Grantseeking Survey? Because you can use the results (which are free to you) as actionable organizational tools. Here's how.

Online Education

Organization Evaluation (NEW)

Wednesday, March 4, 2020

Nonprofits need to focus on more than mission-specific activities to build a strong organization that can continue to serve over time. This webinar, presented by Mindy Muller, provides the opportunity for leaders to consider how to measure the health of their organizations and plan for long-term sustainability. Participants will complete Community Development Professional's Organization Evaluation Tool to get an assessment of the health of their nonprofit in the six areas of Legalities, Board Governance, Image Management, Resource Development, Strategic Planning, and Program Impact. This webinar then covers those six components and offers participants the opportunity to identify next steps to strengthen the health of their organization. Participants will leave this webinar with an understanding of their organization's key strengths and areas of weakness and be ready to take strategic actions to strengthen the organization.
