Developing Effective Dashboards and Key Performance Indicators June Nonprofit Forum

We hope you’ll join us for what has become one of the hottest nonprofit accounting topics: Dashboards and KPIs.

It’s more than measuring – though that is necessary.  It’s more than powerful displays – though they are so cool to work with.  It’s about choosing the right things to measure and monitor with your mission in mind.

Do you have a dashboard and know what your key performance indicators (KPI’s) are for your organization? Please bring your questions so we can have a candid conversation regarding dashboards and KPI’s.

We’re happy to share what we’ve seen in the field, but it will be a more valuable use of your time to talk about what matters for your organization.

Nonprofits are complex organizations that are built around mission and outcomes, which must be supported by the right revenue and expense models. We will cover the critical aspects of Effective Dashboards and Key Performance Indicators including:

  • How dashboards allow decision-makers to see where and whether the organization is on the planned financial path
  • Using dashboard with funders and stakeholders to illustration real-time progress towards desired goals.
  • How to develop the associated metrics and constantly review to ensure you are measuring success for the organization.

A properly designed dashboard allows a nonprofit to monitor its effectiveness as evidenced by the financial health along with the impact of the programs and services provided. Board and staff should develop strategy and goals to create dashboards with focused conversation and collaboration.

When you select the dashboard elements, you should understand the data you will track and how that data will influence decision making. Questions to ask include: Are the metrics for the organization or function? Is the tool for the board, staff, or funders?
