Raising the Bar on Nonprofit Impact Measurement

Raising the Bar on Nonprofit Impact Measurement“Ultimately, I am much more comfortable with the view that nonprofits should drive their own impact measurement agendas, than a paternalistic view of the world in which only experts carry out evaluations and funders make all the decisions based on evidence they produce. The closer nonprofits are to their beneficiaries, the better able they are to represent them. Good impact measurement will ensure that they remain close, and understand the detail and nuance of their lives. In the end, that’s an approach to raising the bar on impact that helps make us accountable to beneficiaries—the people we’re here to help.”
