Media and many nonprofit organizations are pushing donors to allocate their gifts based on 3rd party evaluations of a nonprofit’s effectiveness. What do those rankings and ratings really mean? What data is used to formulate these ratings?

Sheff Crowder, President of Conn Memorial Foundation, will share what you should know about GuideStar and Charity Navigator evaluation processes and what their results really mean.

After this class you will not only understand the strengths and weaknesses of third party evaluations but also be able to develop your strategy for your nonprofit’s use of these rankings.

This class is perfect for executive leadership, board members, grant writers, and fundraisers. If you speak with current or potential donors about your organizations impact, you will benefit from this class.
