Measuring success and reporting impact **NEW**
19 October 2016London

Date:
19 October 2016

Time:
10:00-17:00

Venue:
Kelmscott House
London

Description:
Recent research into funder motivations reveals that the heritage sector needs to do more to measure and report community impact to compete with other sectors. Heritage projects can be seen as less attractive to donors than those that are more able to clearly demonstrate social impact. For, example, measuring and reporting the difference made by a volunteering scheme is just one example of how heritage organisations can meet this requirement. The workshop will help to identify appropriate methods and tools relevant for measuring heritage impact for each delegate. It will also develop ways to communicate impact to a range of heritage donors and prospects.This workshop includes a guest speaker from New Philanthropy Capital, who will talk about their recent report on why donors and investors feel heritage needs to measure impact. We will also have a short session on GTH Next Steps – support and further training for GTH delegates after March 2016.
