    Share your best practices: Cycle 1

    Hi everyone,

    We here at Philanthropy University recognize that you guys, our learners, are experts in what you do. For that reason, we want to to hear your best practices for common challenges you face in your work.

    Every couple weeks, we will ask a new question related to your best practices at work. Please provide your and/or your organization's best practices, and "vote" for others' best practices that you agree with or are helpful. Based on the best practices that get the most “votes”, we will gather this community’s favorite answers and make a collection of the Measurement, Evaluation, and Learning community’s best practices. This collection of best practices will be available to all learners who visit this community, supporting other individuals interested in Measurement, Evaluation, and Learning to overcome these common challenges.

    • Tell us about an effective solution your organization employs for monitoring and evaluating the performance of its work?

    Great, thank you @Unia ! Do you have any resources you can share for other community members that may not be familiar with how to do a social impact analysis?

    We monitor calls into our toll-free hotline with a data tracking sheet to learn sociodemographic information about the caller, time of the call, the topic of inquiry, and how the caller learned about the hotline. Since the majority of callers learn about the hotline through our radio show, we target subsequent episodes to reflect frequently asked hotline questions. We also expanded our hotline's hours of operation after we learned that we were missing a significant amount of calls on nights and weekends.

    Love this description of the sort of feedback loop you and your organization have between your programs and services (radio show, hotline) and your beneficiaries @Amy . How in this process do you and your organization determine if these programs and services are successful in supporting the organization's mission and vision? Are there any quantitative ways that you approach this?

    Thanks for this note @ONESPHORE ! What course in particular you speaking to? Philanthropy University is free for all, so we hope that the content and objectives of courses will help convince organizational leaders of their value to their staff. There is also the option to invite leaders of your organization as an "administrator" for your organization on Philanthropy University through the "my account" page.
