Course Description:

Today’s grant proposals face three tough challenges:
  • Messaging and credibility must differentiate them amid intense competition for funding.
  • Pre-award promises must set up—not sabotage—post-award performance.
  • Every aspect of the proposal must meet new Uniform Grant Guidance requirements.
Social Return on Investment (SROI) can be a powerfully effective tool for meeting these challenges. But how does SROI work and how can you use it to go beyond the traditional Logic Model to define your most compelling stories and present meaningful metrics that speak to the minds—and hearts—of funding decision-makers?

Here’s how!

Register now for The Value of Doing Good: Social Return on Investment.

In this 90-minute webinar, professional grants writer Heather Stombaugh explains how to calculate your own SROI and use it to create all-new ways to communicate meaningful results to stakeholders. Your new SROI skills will let you speak to for-profit decision-makers in their own language and in the language of accountability and performance required under OMB’s new codified pre-award requirements.

An edge on pre-award competition and post-award performance. You’ll learn how to differentiate your proposal by using your SROI calculation to tell a compelling story built on a credible, quantifiable case for the monetary value of your organization’s impact on society. You’ll also gain insights into how to use your SROI to meet post-award requirements for delivering—and demonstrating—performance. Plus, you can ask your specific questions during the Q&A portion of the presentation.

Reserve your space now to use Social Return on Investment to take fundraising to the next level, including:
  • How OMB’s codified pre-award guidance affects pre-award requirements—particularly applicant risk assessments
  • How to define the elements of your own most compelling SROI
  • Most effective methods for collecting data to calculate your SROI
  • How to synthesize data to measure SROI and use SROI measures to create compelling stories and credibility that differentiates you from others competing for awards
