Looking Ahead: Nonprofit Fundraising and Development

Alyson Stoffer, Director of Development, TLC and President, AFP Triangle

Eight months ago, I became a new director of development. The timing was great. I had a month and a half under my belt at the beginning of a pandemic where the next days and months were certain and manageable. Just in time to start putting together my first budget, inclusive of what to do about our organization’s largest source of philanthropic dollars: in-person events. Everything was fine.

Evaluation and Measurement of Outcomes

Impact is the difference your nonprofit makes: there's the work you do and the results that flow from it. However, nonprofits, grantmakers, and government partners often focus on outcomes. The National Council of Nonprofits has compiled resources and tools for evaluation and measurement of outcomes to help your nonprofit better evaluate your work, measure outcomes and success, and communicate impact.
