A working theory of change is key to all of the aspects of a successful nonprofit – from budgeting to fundraising to evaluation. Alliance for Nevada Nonprofits is pleased to partner with Forefront to offer this webinar series that will help you create a theory of change for your organization or program.
This three-part webinar series will introduce the theory of change framework. You’ll come away with an understanding of how a clear theory of change can serve as the foundation of successful evaluation, fundraising, communications, and budgeting. Our instructors will also provide the tools necessary to create a theory of change for your organization or program.
