Organizational Assesments

We recognize that sometimes organizations don’t have time to look at themselves wholistically and that they are often forced to take on programs because they need to address a pressing community need.

Landmark's assessments of your organization are the first step in an organization's journey towards effective outcomes. The goal of an assessments is to collect data that can help the nonprofit evaluate whether or not it is making progress towards various goals, including whether the nonprofit can demonstrate that it is doing work to advance its mission.
