The Association of Fundraising Professionals Southeastern Wisconsin is hosting “Logic Models”:
“Logic Models are tools to help you explain complex systems in simplified terms. They are visual representations of the relationships between resources, activities and outcomes. Sound interesting? Helpful? Fun? (Not that grant proposals need to be more fun…!)
Because their data includes your program or project inputs, outputs, and outcomes, Logic Models are commonly used when trying to secure funding, but are also a helpful tool for evaluation planning. In this workshop, you will learn the components of a simple logic model, how to create a new model, and how to tweak an existing one. After this workshop, you will have an understanding of the importance of inputs, outputs, and outcomes and will be able to differentiate between them. Join us for this interesting session!
