Durham, New Hampshire – January 20, 2016 – Measurement 101 for Nonprofits eBook Released by Paine Publishing

Katie Paine, co-author with Beth Kanter of the award-winning book, Measuring the Networked NonprofitUsing Data to Change the World, has released an eBook today designed to serve as the practical handbook for any nonprofit wanting to become a data-informed organization.

Paine wrote the book in response to feedback she has received since Measuring the Networked Nonprofit was first published. “Since our book came out, I’ve been getting questions from nonprofits about how to make measurement a reality, and how to implement good metrics.  I’ve been accumulating those questions and my answers for the past few years and the result is this eBook,” said Paine. “Things are moving so fast in the measurement world, we chose to put out an electronic handbook so we can update it as new tools and techniques are released.”

Buyers of the eBook may also join Paine’s subscriber-exclusive monthly Measurement Hour in which she answers any measurement questions her readers have.

Measurement 101 for Nonprofits provides practical, detailed guidance on how nonprofits can become data-informed organizations. It covers everything from a simple checklist to begin the measurement process to detailed guidance on how to analyze results. Other topics include:

  • Seven tips to help you understand your data
  • How to budget for measurement (including 6 ways to measure if you have no budget)
  • Understanding and measuring the different levels of engagement
  • Criteria for selecting the right vendors, tools, and metrics
