Simple Logic Model for Nonprofits (Quick Guide)


Designing a logic model (or theory of change diagram) is a key part of building your evaluation capacity and starting the evaluation process. Watch this if your not sure what a theory of change is, or not sure how to start your theory of change process. In this Connecting Evidence video, I share a simplified theory of change framework (or logic model framework) that I often include in workshops because it’s a simple exercise that can be done quickly. You can follow along by downloading my guide on getting meaningful data. This logic model development guide focuses on program activities, logic model outcomes, nonprofit data collection activities, and asks you to reflect on potential improvements.


The goal of this logic model template or theory of change template is to give you a jumping-off point so that you can reflect on your data collection. That is, identify places where you might collect data on key outcomes that will help you make decisions, improvements, understand the extent to which you are achieving those outcomes, and hopefully be better positioned to advocate for your work. Doing this is key to your nonprofit capacity building process because it will allow you to effectively improve your programming over time so that you can achieve your organization’s mission.


You can think of this as a simple logic model that doesn’t include logic model inputs or logic model outputs. However, if you’re interested, learn more by watching some of the other videos.
