WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Through their grant-making, funders make a difference to people’s lives in countless ways. But just knowing you might be making some kind of difference isn’t enough: you need to know exactly what difference your grants are making, and you need to have robust data to inform your grantmaking decisions. Led by our expert measurement team, this workshop will take you through what to measure, which methodology to use, and how to judge the quality of grantees’ impact measurement.
With a group size of no more than 15, the workshop will be interactive and hands-on. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The training will help you to:
- Understand the terminology, concepts and definitions
- Identify intended and unintended social impacts
- Develop and use a theory of change
- Prioritise outcomes for measurement
- Choose the right level of evidence
- Decide when to collect data and from whom, and how to sample
- Support grantees with impact measurement
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The training is an introductory session and assumes no prior knowledge. It is aimed at funders who are either new to impact measurement or looking to improve their approach.
WHO DELIVERS THE TRAINING?
The training is delivered by our consultants who are experts in working with funders and charities of all shapes and sizes to develop robust and systematic methods for measuring the difference they make.
This training is based on our report NPC’s four pillar approach. For further background information, read our paper on Theory of change, and our survey of impact practice among funders, Funding impact.
Note we will be handing our materials on the day of the event too.
