Online (English) On-Demand Event

Directors within not-for-profit organizations play a key role in ensuring that their organization’s program evaluation process is strong and generates useful, credible information that supports decision-making. Although boards are not typically involved in day-to-day program evaluation, they need to have oversight and a well-developed understanding of this area. This is essential as it helps ensure that their organization is effectively working towards its mission. Directors of not-for-profit organizations need to be able to answer questions including:

  • Do the programs and services delivered by our not-for-profit organization support our mission?
  • Do our initiatives make a difference to the people, communities, and causes that we serve?
  • What have we accomplished with the resources that have been entrusted to us?
  • Do we have clear goals and outcomes that are effectively linked to our strategy?

This online course provides essential information and tools for directors within not-for-profit organizations that are looking to fulfill their governance role in program evaluation.

The course expands upon the document: Board oversight of not-for-profit program evaluation: Questions for directors to ask, adding case studies and interviews from board members to enhance your learning experience and earn CPD hours.
