how impactful is your non-profit program?
Take the FREE Non-Profit Program Diagnostic Survey to find out!
Delivering positive measurable results through effective services to meet the specific need(s) of a community.
Non-Profit organizations strive to create and build "impactful" programs - but how do you know for sure that your program is making a true impact in the community it is serving? Impact has evolved beyond a "good feeling" or display of doing good work, but having evidence and proof that your program(s) are delivering quality service that meet the needs of the community! In 2019, the National Center on Charitable Statistics noted that 30% of non-profit organizations will fail within 10 years and over half will stagnate or cease to exist, within the first few years. Author, Tracy Ebarb shared, there were 7 main reasons Non-Profits fail, mentioning,
The Fear of Information as #7,
"Few [Non-Profits] have enough data to guide planning, analyze management systems, or redirect underperforming programs or communications ... the entrepreneurial spirit of charity leaders causes them to fly by the seat of their pants, to trust their own (often flawed) instincts."
Plow & Grow Consulting wants to serve your Non-Profit organization by helping YOU develop and improve through "high impact" programs, so your organization can run efficiently while attracting and retaining employees and financial resources. This FREE Program Diagnostic Survey can provide you with key information to help develop and improve "low impact" programs.
Programs that present as "low impact" often experience the following:
low or decreasing participant engagement
inconsistent and unclear direction with program planning and goals
inability to attract and retain funding/resources
inability to attract and retain quality talent
high employee turnover
30% chance of becoming inactive within 10 years (source: National Center on Charitable Statistics. 2019)
