Your organization is committed to maximizing your impact and to telling the story of your progress in an accessible, concise way. People want to help you make a difference—through donations, volunteering, and more—but often struggle to find a succinct, consistent resource that clarifies what nonprofits want to achieve and what they have already accomplished.
Charting Impact responds to these needs. BBB Wise Giving Alliance, GuideStar USA, and Independent Sector developed Charting Impact as a common presentation that allows staff, boards, stakeholders, donors, volunteers, and others to work with and learn from each other.
Developed with input from nearly 200 organizations, this thoroughly tested framework focuses on enabling your organization to be more effective. It encourages strategic thinking about how your nonprofit or foundation will achieve its intended impact and helps you share concise information about your plans and progress with key stakeholders and the public.
