Topic 1: How to Build a Ladder of Engagement and Use it to Deepen Relationships
The trending research says that volunteers and donors want more involvement and to help solve problems, not just donate time or money and step away. How can you build your own organizational ladder of engagement to develop your volunteers into supporters, and your supporters into volunteers? What are the touch points in your nonprofit’s engagement with supporters? This ladder is your supporter-centric way of looking at strategic action. We’ll highlight how to customize a ladder of engagement for your nonprofit, using metrics and measurements that matter to your organization.
Goals of this workshop: Participants will:
- Identify steps to building a ladder of engagement
- Begin to develop their own ladder of engagement, using actions that matter to their stakeholders
- Apply the concept of measurement to engagement
Topic 2: Getting Started with Data-Driven Decision Making
This extended version (afternoon session) of the Ladder of Engagement workshop is a working session focused on measurement and data. We live in a results focused time. Volunteers that engage with our organizations want to know the results of their volunteer activity. Are their efforts truly making a difference? Yet many organizations have struggled to get beyond counting the numbers and hours of volunteers. We will explore approaches to measuring your volunteer efforts.
Measuring may not be as challenging as you suspect. Starting to track a few strategic metrics can be a big step toward a more data-driven culture. Once your staff has data that they can use to make decisions, they will often start to want more. A few, straightforward metrics can start the snowball to a more broad-based program.
Getting started isn’t a trivial process, however. What metrics will be useful and actionable—but not require a ton of time to collect and understand? How do you define and communicate data in order for your organization to make decisions? This hands-on work session will focus on developing ideas and plans for your organization.
