We are pleased to co-sponsor this event along with non-profit research and consulting firm, Root Cause.
Panelists will discuss the importance of performance measurement, and how it can advance the sector by providing organizations with the data necessary to understand and improve their program’s effectiveness, as well as providing funders and donors with the information they need to make informed, strategic giving decisions.
Who should attend: 

  • Non-profit executives working in the fields of college access and success, youth employment, and youth development

  • Susan Lange, Vice President, Youth Pathways, Commonwealth Corporation
  • Charles (“Chuck”) Longfield, Trustee, Longfield Family Foundation

The second panel is comprised of non-profit executives who will discuss why they have invested time and resources into performance measurement and external assessment. They will provide insight into how other nonprofits can use measurement and assessment to learn, improve programs, fundraise, and showcase results.
