Description

Logic models are nonprofit road maps: they help you diagram where you are now and where you hope to be in the future. They are used for program planning, program management, fundraising, communications, consensus-building, and evaluation planning.

Want to make a logic model, but not sure where to start? In this 90-minute webinar, Johanna Morariu and Ann Emery taught about the nuts and bolts of logic models--what they are, how to make them, who should be involved in the process, and how often to update them. We’ll provide you with tools like a logic model template, free online logic model builder, and a logic model checklist. We’ll also share several examples from real nonprofits so that you’re ready to hit the ground running.
