Date: 21 Feb 2023

Grantseekers, join us for a FREE webinar to understand how to effectively measure outcomes.

Welcome back to 2023. As promised to those who attended our Outcomes 101 for grantseekers webinars run in October and November last year, Our Community’s Chief Impact Officer, Jen Riley is running a follow up webinar, “How to measure your outcomes” on February 21.

This webinar, like the first, is aimed at not-for-profit staff and volunteers trying to work out outcomes and associated measures to provide information to stakeholders on the work of their program/organisation.

A recent analysis revealed that applicants commonly mistake outcomes for activities and objectives. With outcomes measurement now required by most funders, applicants need to be able to articulate their program’s intended outcomes to make an appealing case for funding.

Join SmarytGrants’ chief impact officer, Jen Riley, for this free webinar that will cover:

  1. A quick recap of last session
  2. How to find existing metrics for your outcomes and assess if they are the right metrics for you
  3. How to develop your own metrics to go with your outcome statements
  4. How to collect data for your metrics
  5. There will be time for some questions so bring them along!

Important: It is strongly recommended that you have attended part one to get the most out of this webinar. The content is designed for those who attended the first session as we will be using terminology and concepts covered in it. There will be a very quick refresher but if November 2022 feels like 2005 after that great holiday maybe re-listen to the webinar on your next walk!

You can watch the recording of part one here and download the slides here.
