4. Major Gifts Ramp-Up TRAINING EXAMS
We take MGRU training seriously and the “cloud” has been developed in such a way to ensure nonprofits and their executives, staff, board and volunteers are transformed by the MGRU online digital training series using the following levels of evaluation. Level 1 – Reactionary Evaluation – “did they like it?” Provides information about participants’ level of satisfaction with the training and development activities. Accomplished by collecting data from participants by way of a questionnaire at the end of training. Level 2 – Learning Evaluation – “did they learn it? Provides information regarding the extent to which participants have attained the learning objectives of a training and development initiative. Accomplished by collecting data on participants from pre-tests and post-tests. Level 3 – Application Evaluation – “did they apply it? Provides information about the transfer of learning and the use of the skills and knowledge acquired from a training and development initiative to the actual work place. Accomplished by collecting data by way of outcome measures, key performance indicators and other metrics. Level 4 – Impact Evaluation – “did it make a difference?” Provides information concerning the extent to which the person has benefited from the training and development initiative and verifies the actual return on the investment, documents the degree of change since the baseline measures were taken.
5. Major Gifts Ramp-Up RESOURCE SERIES
The “Resource Series” contains 40 “white papers” allowing you to introduce organizational development, fundraising, management, and nonprofit advancement to staff, board, and volunteers.
