TJF Demonstrable Outcomes and Key Performance Indicators

One of the most important services a community funder can provide is to be clear about what it seeks to achieve through its funding, and how it intends to measure impact along the way. In an effort to be more specific and focused in its strategic priorities, the Jewish Foundation (TJF) has
established 7 primary Demonstrable Outcomes (DOs) for its grantmaking, ranging from Jewish Engagement and Education, to Basic Social Service Needs, to Organizational Efficiency and Effectiveness. To assess progress towards those broad community objectives.

TJF has begun to track a series of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Sharing this measurement process with the Foundation’s grant partners began in earnest this past year via a series of presentations by TJF staff, and the Foundation will now begin collecting indicator data from its partners over the coming year to help establish baselines for each of these outcomes. The accompanying graphic illustrates those 7 Demonstrable Outcomes and the respective Indicators that are being tracked:

DO1: Jewish Organizations Are Operating Efficiently and Effectively
KPIs: Being tracked thru TJF’s Biennial Organizational Health Inventory Survey DO2: Jewish Organizations Reflect Strong Fiscal Health, Leadership and Governance

More information on these opportunities can be found in the Reflect Cincy Launch section of this annual report.
