Developing and maintaining effective dashboards

A dashboard is a display of key indicators that help14144218916_aa19acbcf6_o institutions steer their activities towards their declared strategic outcomes. The imagery, of course, is obvious to anyone who drives a car. Just like the dashboard on your 1981 Ford Fairmont, it’s critical that indicators be visible and the data easy for a user to assimilate. This typically necessitates graphic displays such as graphs, pie charts, or something more creative.

The In Trust Center has presented a webinar on how to use dashboards effectively. Here's a summary of it, along with a few helpful hints. 


Reception Invitation 2016

Special event fundraising, ugh! But if you must... 


A flood of emails urged members of a ministry’s Outreach Committee to round-up prizes for the Special event fundraising 2spring bike/walk fundraiser. We’re talking a veritable fundraiser’s dream team — networked, talented, and unafraid to ask big — being “challenged” to chase after everything from free movie passes and ice cream coupons to a $5-$10 gift certificate.  “Or whatever the owner is willing to give.”

This is a colossal waste of volunteer time. 


How do you say "thanks" to faculty?

While it’s important to thank faculty and show appreciation for their hard work and dedication, it’s not always feasible to demonstrate thisThank you 4 appreciation through salary increases. When budgets are already tight, it may be impossible to accommodate the extra costs. 

This doesn’t mean, however, that there's no way to thank faculty. Instead, it means that seminary leaders may need to get creative. A few years ago, In Trust published an article with some ways to say “thank you” when money is tight.
