Whether you want to substantiate social spend or secure additional investment, the Impact Management Reporting Guideline will support you in your journey.
The guideline is the result of an 18-month collaboration between nearly 100 social investors and non-profit organisations (NPOs) in the Nation Builder community to create a shared solution that meets the requirements of all parties.
Currently, the lack of standardised measurements makes it almost impossible to compare and determine which approaches accomplish the best results. This makes it difficult to develop effective strategies based on quantifiable data, and hinders a national view on where support is needed most.
The guideline will help standardise much of the reporting that social investors need, even while some reporting to social investors necessarily remains funder-specific.
“At a time when funding has slowed and social needs have increased dramatically, it’s never been more important for NPOs and social investors to be able to quantify their social impact. Stakeholders want more efficiency, consistency, value and quality in terms of the social impact insights that are available to them, which has shown a collective need for well-informed decision-making,” says Keri-Leigh Paschal, Executive Director of social impact initiative, Nation Builder.
More about the guideline
The guideline takes a deep dive into the 7 key principles of impact reporting, the importance of using a measurement framework, the methodologies and tools you can use to enhance your reporting and more.
10 insightful case stories, helpful resources and reporting templates from the guideline, will lighten the impact reporting load.
The guideline will be freely available to view or download from the Nation Builder website after the virtual launch which takes place on the 25th of March 2021 from 10:00 – 11:30am.
