Feedback series: Learning from reporting to funders

Recently, we have talked about making a strong start to the new year. One of the themes that has come up over and over is collecting data, reflecting on it, and using it. So, for the next few weeks, we will be talking about feedback: in this episode, the humble end of year report. An opportunity to communicate with our funders and reflect on a year of programming.

Reporting on our programs is an opportunity to strengthen our relationships with funders, improve our programs, and learn as an organization. Rebecca and I talked about the year-end report and how to maximize its value in your organization.

We shared:

  • Building stronger relationships with funders through the reporting process
  • Ensuring that every piece of data that you collect has value, and
  • Using data to stay nimble in an era of uncertainty

About Pieta Blakely

I help mission-based organizations measure their impact so that they can do what they do well. I started my nonprofit career as a teacher in workforce development and adult basic education. It was important work and I was worried that we didn’t really know if we were doing it well. In the process of trying to answer that question, I got a Masters in Education and a PhD in Social Policy, and became an evaluator.
