Details of the Event
1.00 – 2.30pm: Proof’s in the pudding: Why impact measurement matters and how to do it right (presented by SIMNA Victoria)
How do you know that the work your or your organisation is doing is having a positive impact on people and communities? How can you prove to others that the work is worthwhile? How can you improve the impact of your efforts?
Social sector is fast realising that feel good stories are no longer enough to engage supporters and funders. With so many causes and people asking for money and support on every corner, organisations need to effectively measure and transparently report their social impact.
SIMNA (Social Impact Measurement Australia) will run a session that will introduce you to the world of impact measurement: What do you need to get started? What tools can you use? What are the biggest pitfalls to avoid? How to effectively communicate your impact? How will it benefit your organisation or cause? You will walk away with a set of practical advice that you will be able to implement immediately in the work that you do in your community.
