Putting a Price Tag on Social Impact:

How to Quantify the Value of Your Outcomes

As CARES Act dollars begin to dissipate, nonprofits are scrambling to replace funding that has been essential to the sustainability of their organizations over the past year. Grants are becoming increasingly competitive regardless of the cause, meanwhile, the core individual donor base hasn’t quite realized full economic recovery. How can your organization take critical steps now to become more appealing to donors, funders, sponsors, and grantors, and ensure long-term sustainability in this new post-pandemic world?
Organizations that can demonstrate and communicate their social impact—including articulating their social return on investment (SROI), will be the organizations that will win across these multiple sources of funding.
Join Measurement Resources Company and SureImpact, Inc. founder and CEO, Sheri Chaney Jones, as she shares how you can select the right measures and use outcomes data to communicate the impact your programs and services generate, in order to prove your value to multiple stakeholder groups—all while increasing trust and an affinity for your organization’s mission. As a bonus, Sheri will share her proven formula for calculating your organization’s or individual program’s social return on investment (SROI), so that you can tout the value of your outcomes to the world.

Thursday, September 23rd

10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Fees: Members – No Charge             Non-Members $20.00

President
Measurement Resources Company
Sheri Chaney Jones is a social entrepreneur, who has helped government, non-profit organizations and social enterprises gather and use data to change actions, outcomes, and lives. Sheri is the founder of Measurement Resources Company, a national organizational development and research firm, and co-founder and CEO of SureImpact, a cloud-based solution that helps social sector organizations and collective impact initiatives measure and communicate their unique social impact. An author, professor, and internationally recognized expert, she regularly keynotes conferences and events, where she speaks about high-performance measurement cultures, data-driven strategy and decision-making, and using data to attract more funding. Sheri is also the author of the award-winning book, Impact & Excellence: Data-driven Strategies for Aligning Mission, Culture, and Performance in Nonprofit and Government Organizations, published by Jossey-Bass in 2014.

Measurement Resources provides services and strategies to help government and nonprofit organizations use performance measurement to improve programs, outcomes, and lives.
Our president, Sheri Chaney Jones, founded the organization in 2008 with a bold goal: Help every mission-driven organization use measurement to accelerate social change.
Measurement is a powerful tool. Organizations that implement measurement systems turn data into outcomes. Staff see more opportunities, uncover obstacles sooner, and discover untapped efficiencies. They have better data to demonstrate impact, increase visibility, and raise funds. Measurement moves great missions forward.
We have created a High-Performance Measurement Framework™ that combines best practices in industrial and organizational psychology, program evaluation, and data collection to make it easy for teams to implement performance measures that can drive better outcomes.  We can help your team move from data collection for collection’s sake, to measurement for insight, action, and impact.

Y-Dub Discussions: YWomen Vote: Every Year Matters

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Ensuring access to the voting booth is an important part of YWCA’s commitment to eliminating racism and empowering women and is critical to ensuring a healthy, safe, empowered future for our communities. 

Ratified in 1920, the 19th Amendment was a monumental step in empowering women by giving them the right to vote. However, the power structures built on the assumption that women, and especially women of color, would be forever excluded from the political process remain rigidly in place, and people continue to fight over what it means for women to have political power, or whether they truly have it. 

Join us for a community conversation about YWomen Vote, the history of voting challenges, and the continued barriers that women face in America. We’ll also look ahead at practical ways individual citizens can influence public policy and make their voices heard so that women remain a driving force on issues big and small – every single year. 

Free to attend. REGISTER NOW

YWCA Dayton is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Previous Y-Dub Discussion topics have included: the effects of trauma within the classroom; recognizing childhood trauma and toxic stress; the political marginalization of women of color; allyship; racism as a public health crisis; and more.

Know Your Options.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the filing of more than 80 million unemployment claims across the country. As nonprofits begin to re-open or shift operations to safely accomplish their missions, organizations should evaluate the impact of these claims to their 2022 budget and beyond.

Unemployment Savings Programs


A Limited Liability Corporation

The Unemployment Savings Program is the only one of its kind and has been for over 20 years. It provides a fixed annual budget and your organization’s very own interest-bearing, proprietary reserve account, all while allowing you to save thousands of dollars when compared to paying the State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) tax. More importantly, your cost and coverage is entirely unaffected by other members.

How does it work?

  • The Unemployment Savings Program is specifically designed for your organization.
    Annual fees are based exclusively on your unemployment experience and employment profile. There are no shared risks or expenses.
  • Improve cash flow by making equal, fixed quarterly payments to your reserve account.
    While most SUI tax payments are made during the first and second quarters of the calendar year, our program members make four equal quarterly payments.
  • Build a reserve account your organization actually owns.
    Unlike the taxes paid into your SUI tax account with the state, this interest-bearing reserve account is yours and will be returned to you if you should ever decide to withdraw from the program. Your account balance can be considered an asset and recognized as such in your organization’s financial records.
  • Your organization is protected against high unemployment years with stop-loss insurance that caps your financial liability.
    If you lose funding and need to restructure your organization or reduce staff, our stop-loss insurance limits your liability.
  • Professional unemployment claims administration and cost control is included.
    Receive services from unemployment insurance professionals familiar with your state’s laws and statutory requirements to assist you with claims validation, representation at all unemployment appeal hearings, audit of benefit charges, and more.

Why choose First Nonprofit?

Our unique programs are tailored specifically to you. There are no pooled losses or shared expenses; stop-loss insurance limits are calculated for each member based on their size and experience; an individual organization’s coverage limits are not impacted by any other member’s negative claim experience.

We offer true insurance coverage, not group reserves or joint and several liability exposure. Every dollar paid into your reserve account pays for claims charged only by your former employees. In addition, we have access to claims administrators across the country, allowing you to access service that fits your organization’s needs.

We provide state-compliant, individually insured, cost-saving options to satisfy SUI (State Unemployment Insurance) requirements for nonprofit, government and tribal entities.  The analysis is free and there is no obligation to join.

“Understanding Nonprofit Financial Statements for Non-Financial Users”

Accurate, relevant, and timely financial information is key to making good decisions for nonprofit executives and board members. But, do all of your board members really understand the numbers they receive and what they mean to your organization? Board members come from different walks of life and different positions in the community. Some may have financial backgrounds, but many might not. It’s this latter point you need to keep in mind as you supply financial data.
In this session, Brady Ware will discuss the unique aspects of accounting and financial reporting for nonprofit organizations as well as various techniques to use in evaluating an organization’s financial performance.

Thursday, October 21st

10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Fees: Members – No Charge             Non-Members $20.00

How do we go from surviving to thriving? Join us for our next Y-Dub Discussions in Preble County during YWCA USA’s Week Without Violence. Held at My Neighbor’s House, this casual community conversation will focus on the importance of allyship for ensuring freedom and dignity for all during Domestic Violence Awareness Month and beyond. 

For more than 20 years, YWCA USA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence – a week to raise awareness and engage action to end the broad spectrum of violence – as part of a global movement with World YWCA to end violence against women and girls. 

Through basic tenets like respect and responsibility for one another, together we can move beyond resilience, helping create communities in which women and girls are able to thrive. During this interactive, in-person event, we’ll equip you with the tools to start where you are and do your part to strengthen the community, joining us On a Mission of eliminating racism and empowering women.  

Free to attend. REGISTER NOW

In celebration of our new book release, Mission Met: Proven Strategic Planning Guidance to Help You Build a Financially-Secure and Impactful Nonprofit, author Eric Ryan* is hosting a 30-minute workshop to help your organization craft ideal mission and vision statements.

Your organization’s mission is your core purpose and your mission statement defines that purpose. Your organization’s vision statement defines the impact that you’d like to achieve. Both are vital to guiding the direction of your nonprofit.

There is perhaps no other part of strategic planning that can be more contentious or frustrating than coming up with a mission and vision statement for your organization. A big part of the problem is that these statements are sometimes so long and lofty that they don’t end up saying anything at all.

At Mission Met, we love these statements. We think that when they’re well-written and you’ve put some solid thought into creating them, they can propel the success of your organization.

Bring Your Own Mission to this workshop and Eric will provide his guidance and proven formula for crafting these statements. We will select a couple of attendees for a live consultation.

Please register for free at https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_N2AfakPiQRmEgWnZJ69oiQ

*Eric Ryan is a co-founder of the nonprofit strategic planning consulting and software firm, Mission Met. He has been an executive director of two nonprofits and held several board positions. For nearly twenty-five years he has provided strategic planning consulting and facilitation services to hundreds of organizations.
