 Registration is closed for this event
May 27th 2020 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM



Colorado Nonprofit Association will continue to offer educational and training opportunities for nonprofit professionals while following government guidelines and public health recommendations to keep our community safe. This session will be presented virtually via Zoom technology at no cost to participants. Contact Nick DiTulio ( with thoughts or questions. 


Is your organization grappling with evaluations and indicators that you feel don’t adequately tell your impact story? Are you confused by the differences between a logic model and a Theory of Change? This training will help.

A Theory of Change is both a process and a product that helps you and your organization’s stakeholders describe complex social and development interventions. Theories of Change can take different forms, including a traditional logic model and much more. Regardless of form, they should explain the problem your organization addresses, who you serve, what you do, and the multiple levels of outcomes that result from your work.

This  training builds on the introductory, Part 1 Theory of Change training offered earlier this year. In this training, we will go into further depth on:


  • Using existing research to conduct a situation analysis of the problem and assemble the evidence base for your solution
  • Facilitation techniques and stakeholder engagement
  • Adding specificity through identifying appropriate indicators
  • Using a Theory of Change when conducting monitoring & evaluation
