Social Impact Measurement Certificate (June 2024)

Session details

Registration closes on Wednesday, June 19th at 5:00 P.M. (Arizona time). 

The Social Impact Measurement Certificate is designed for individuals who want to lead their organization’s efforts in evaluating or tracking the performance of their programs. It will help individuals:

  • Design an evaluation;
  • Learn to collect data to tell your organization’s story;
  • Analyze and use information you collect.

Today’s successful nonprofit organizations are placing more emphasis on evaluation in order to:

  • Plan and improve programs based on data;
  • Prove they are worthy of the public trust and the dollars they are given;
  • Show contributors that their social investment is working –what’s their return on investment?
  • Ensure that people for whom the organization exists are receiving tangible benefits;
  • Help understand delivery of programs and staffing needs from a management perspective.
