Keystone to offer Performance Improvement Workshop for Nonprofit Organizations - September 27, 2013

September 5th, 2013 | General »

Through collaboration between The Nonprofit Partnership and  KeyStone Research Corporation, we are offering nonprofits in our region an opportunity to learn an innovative methodology for evaluating and improving their organization’s performance. Given today’s focus on achieving outcomes and being held accountable for performance, along with funding that is dwindling or remaining steady in an environment of rising costs, it is imperative that nonprofits find avenues to streamline and improve their operational and program processes in ways that do not compromise program effectiveness.
