The Logic Behind Logic Models

Wednesday, August 21, 2013  
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

A Logic Model is a tool that nonprofits use to describe a program to either current or prospective funders. It shows the relationships between resources that the nonprofit puts into a program, the activities and outputs that ensue and what changes or outcomes the program hopes to achieve. It is a commonly-used device when measuring and proving a program’s effectiveness, and is often required by funders when applying for a grant or reporting on program progress.

In this half-day workshop, attendees will gain a thorough understanding of logic models and become prepared to develop them for programs they work with regularly. We will discuss how and why logic models are used in program planning and grant seeking, review each of the components in the logic model framework, then practice creating these tools in small groups and individually.
