Program Topic:  

MAKING A COMPELLING CASE FOR SUPPORT | Measuring the Outcomes of the Work

Presented By: Ann Rice

This thirty minute presentation is for fund raising professionals, particularly grant writers, who want all the arrows in their quivers when targeting donors. Speaker Ann Rice describes the ways in which measuring outcomes benefits organizations and persuades funders that clients change as a result of your good work. Organized by the five best reasons that your donor appeal should focus on RESULTS, Rice will also illustrate what constitutes a real outcome versus just activities and numbers served. Audience participation will be encouraged

About the Presenter: Ann Rice


A twenty-five year veteran of United Way of Tarrant County TX, Ann Rice served most recently as Chief Operating Officer of this nationally recognized organization. In this capacity, she was responsible for community planning and problem-solving, fund distribution, research and information services, the Area Agency on Aging, public policy advocacy and community and agency relations. Focusing specifically on education, income and health as the building blocks of United Way’s work, Ann co-created three significant multi-year initiatives as platforms for United Way’s approximately $6 million annual investment.

Prior to her work with United Way, Ann launched two important organizations - Toscanini Infant Center at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and Tarrant County Challenge, a key advocate for substance abuse services in our community. In the latter position, she was awarded a 5-year federal Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) grant to promote community organizing in four Fort Worth neighborhoods where the personal devastation caused by alcohol and drug abuse had affected entire communities. Twenty years later, Ann again served one of these communities as Chair of the Near Southeast Weed and Seed organization. 

In all of these capacities, Ann honed her skills in non-profit management, strategic planning, group facilitation, research, writing, and outcome measurement. 

She currently serves as Chair of the Board of Fort Worth Sister Cities. Past board service includes the Rotary Club of Fort Worth, the Women’s Policy Forum, the Funding Information Center, the Fort Worth Theater, and Courage and Renewal North Texas. Ann is married to Patrick Miller, Registrar of Texas Christian University.
