Nonprofits are, at their core, champions for the best in their communities. To best assess how well they are advancing their missions, reaching target audiences, or enacting social and community change efforts, nonprofits need to gather focused and targeted data from engaged stakeholders and from those community members they seek to serve.
How you go about gathering information about or feedback from your stakeholders (participants, audience or community members, donors, or other people who are or may become connected to your nonprofit) will be specific to your organization. Your efforts should be focused on your mission, your programs, and the communities you seek to serve.
Starting with your nonprofit’s mission and vision, or the intended outcomes of a particular program, consider what questions you have that only your stakeholders can answer. Here are a few big-picture questions you might ask:
