Greater Minnesota 2018 Nonprofit Academy: Data Driven Story Telling

Date: Apr 26, 2018
Time: 01:00 PM to 04:00 PM

Rochester Area Foundation Community Room
12 Elton Hills Dr. NW, Rochester

Fee: $30 for MCN members or nonmembers

Practical applications for using data to tell your nonprofit’s unique story abound: describing community need, demonstrating social impact, tracking results, and harnessing learning-driven evaluation for program improvement and subsequent course corrections. In addition, today’s funders increasingly require a data-driven case for support that demonstrates programmatic impact and proves that your nonprofit’s interventions lead to lasting change. This workshop will introduce data and evaluation methodologies that can be used to manage program activities and highlight the link between your programs and their success. The Rochester Public Library team will present a whole-program based logic model for business planning and evaluation and show how it is being used to drive bottom line success for their organization.


Space for this workshop is limited so please register early! Register online through the Rochester Area Foundation website or via the PDF registration form. For questions, please call Jane at 507-424-2417 or email
