Needs Assessment

From the "Organizational Effectiveness" Series

The first purpose of this training manual is to present the techniques for completing an assessment of a nonprofit’s needs. With a completed needs assessment, a nonprofit can then build its capacity and seek appropriate technical assistance from consultants, peers and funding sources.

The second purpose of this training manual is to present the steps and processes required in a community needs assessment, which looks externally and differs from the assessment of the organization’s own needs, which looks internally. The community needs assessment is critical for planning services and for pursuing funds.
