IMPACT: Demonstrating Your Organization’s Value to Donors and Prospects

Join us for this free AFP Aloha Chapter professional advancement session to start off 2018!  In this session, presented by Hawai‘i Community Foundation VP Tom Kelly, you will learn how you can communicate the impact of your organization’s work to donors, funders, and prospects to inspire new gifts and on-going support.

Thursday, February 15, 2018

 8:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m.

Hawai‘i Community Foundation - Kuleana Conference Room

 827 Fort Street Mall, Honolulu


About the session: In the book Donor-Centered Fundraising, survey results indicated donors want to be acknowledged and want to know their gifts are making a difference.

This presentation will help you devise ways to answer these questions for your organization: What impact are we having? What difference are we making? How do we know? How do we communicate this to donors and the community?

 About the presenter: Tom Kelly, Hawai‘i Community Foundation (HCF) Vice President of Knowledge, Evaluation and Learning.

Before joining HCF in 2012, Tom had led and managed evaluation at the Annie E. Casey Foundation in Baltimore, Maryland for 13 years. His work has included the building of internal and grantee evaluation capacity, evaluation of policy advocacy and nonprofit and community capacity, and foundation performance and results measurement.

At the Hawai’i Community Foundation, Tom is leading efforts to evaluate and learn from the investments that the foundation makes in community and is helping to build the capacity of staff and grantees to measure and communicate their impact and results. 

Before working in foundations, Tom was an evaluation consultant in Washington, DC, for state and federal multisite demonstration programs that included evaluations of Head Start, child abuse and neglect prevention, and youth drug abuse prevention. He is a graduate of Harvard College and The George Washington University.
