As many of us adjust to a remote style of work, one resource that remains ever valuable is online professional development opportunities. Join us for a three-part virtual training April 15, 22, and 29 hosted by the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. This series, titled "Developing your Evaluation Strategy and Plan," will take you beyond the basic concepts of evaluation and help you align your evaluation activities to your organization's mission.
Our March newsletter details how we are drawing on our community-responsive approach and technology as we respond to the outbreak of COVID-19. We also provide resources you can use to inform your giving to the communities and organizations most in need during these challenging times. Then, we nerd out to the Census (we just love it so much!) and detail an upcoming digital training you can attend while you are practicing social distancing.

Responding to COVID-19
Like all of you, we have been watching the COVID-19 situation closely and reflecting on its impact on our employees, our practice, and the communities and clients with whom we get to work. We draw on two Improve Group assets for our response: our access to technology and our Community-Responsive Approach. In response to this public health crises, here are some considerations we’re taking into account that could be helpful for you, too.
