- Developing a grant proposal? Don’t start writing until you’ve held an open forum for members of the public to voice their ideas, needs, and concerns.
- Collect feedback. Use surveys to measure clients’ opinions of the services your organization provides. The Fund for Shared Insight has a request for applications (RFA) out now for Listen for Good (L4G), a grant program that helps nonprofits close the feedback loop with the people they serve.
- Make your data visually appealing! Tableau Public is free data-visualization software that allows nonprofits to literally illustrate their impact. Hold public information sessions to discuss your nonprofit’s numbers and services, and request feedback.
