Ailing programs require your attention
Abstract: It’s not uncommon for nonprofits to keep programs long after they’ve stopped being effective. But a “we’ve always done it this way” attitude can prevent an organization from meeting its mission. Community and membership needs change, and a nonprofit must change with them. This article shows how to weigh program effectiveness through the use of surveys, demographic data, community input and specific metrics, and looks at options for programs that aren’t measuring up.
