Ask a Consultant Series, Session 8: Mission Efficiency (Zoom Webinar)

September 8, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Join Forefront and the Association of Consultants to Nonprofits for Ask A Consultant: a monthly interactive, solutions-oriented, virtual office hour with experienced consultants focusing on participants’ burning questions.

As nonprofits have felt the financial squeeze, now is an excellent time to hone in on your central purpose. It’s the opposite of mission creep – these are the days for crystal clear definition of impact. These consultants will share how you can use key metrics and data, analysis of past work, and even storytelling to keep your mission front and center for your staff and your donors.



Fran Caan has twenty years of experience working for charitable organizations and a Master’s degree in nonprofit administration. Fran offers guidance in start-up and infrastructure development, leadership training, fundraising, and budget and financial management.

Vinay Mullick is in his fourth year as Managing Director for UpMetrics.  UpMetrics is a mission-driven technology company working to help impact organizations use data to make informed decisions, build capacity, and tell their stories.

Through DBN & Associates, L3C, she guides clients on their “journey to high performance” as an adaptive consultant, trusted advisor, and culturally aware group facilitator. Debra supports foundations and nonprofits to define social change based on verifiable results, rather than on well-intentioned activities. Her vision is to translate the urgency of outcomes into the practice of continuous improvement.
