Tomorrow at 11am pacific time, I’ll be moderating a conference call sponsored by NTEN, the Nonprofit Technology Network. The details are below, the call is free and over 200 people are already registered. I hope you’ll join us!
NTEN Press Release:
In response to feedback from the sector and from the public, GuideStar, Charity Navigator, and other nonprofit assessment and reporting organizations have announced that it’s all about to change. They are looking to use new metrics that will assess indicators such as (but not limited to):
- Financial health and sustainability;
- Accountability, governance and transparency; and
This is good news for the sector, but what data will be tracked and how we will be asked to provide it is still up in the air. How will effectiveness be measured? What will be required of nonprofits in order to support this effort? What impact will these changes have on the standard operations of a charitable organization?
Join NTEN, Sean Stannard-Stockton of Tactical Philanthropy, along with representatives of the assessing organizations and the nonprofit community for a panel discussion on what these plans mean to nonprofits and the public.
How’s It Work?
This will be a an online chat/teleconference event where you will listen on the phone and simultaneously sign into a live chat.
