Hello <<First Name>>,

Paul Collier here. It's Fall, which for me means harvesting my garden. I'm overflowing with acorn squash at the moment, and if any more come in I will need to start taking orders.

Like my garden, your organization's impact measurement and data systems take care, feeding, and time to mature. These kinds of investments take money and energy up-front, and pay off down the road. Below are some timely resources that might just inspire your moves for the next six months and beyond.
