Impact Data Programs for Nonprofits

Grab the Power of Impact Data to Improve your Fundraising and Operations

I cannot believe we struggle to raise money for our nonprofit when we impact so many lives with such limited resources! We have heard that phrase hundreds of times since we started our social innovation journey.

The private sector leverages data sciences to influence purchases and growth, and unethical social networking companies sell data without the user’s consent creating havoc in society. But the nonprofit sector has yet to embrace data sciences even when studies show that impact data positively affect operations and shifts donors’ behavior.

An Impact-Data Program at your Nonprofit can retain existing donors, employees, and volunteers, shift new donors towards your cause, and open doors for alternative income sources from non-charitable grants.

Impact-Data helps operations, increases donor retention and open doors to new grants

The problem? Donors lack the information to evaluate nonprofits and consider their relative impact when deciding to whom and how much to give.

Even when donors narrow their options by focusing on specific issue areas, populations, or geographies, objective information about impact is mostly unavailable.

As reported by Stanford Social Innovation Review, Impact Genome partnered with ideas42, with funding from Fidelity Charitable Trustees’ Initiative, to test if the availability of impact metrics influenced giving behavior.

Impact Data influences behavior, and in nearly 80 percent of cases, donors exposed to impact data shifted their donations.

When organizations can show their operation’s impact and unit economics, they tap into alternative revenue sources such as Government Programs and Private Sector Initiatives. Yet, few nonprofits and social tech enterprises report on impact. The general belief is that impact data is expensive to gather, manage, organize and visualize.

Start Impact Measurement

  • Shifts donations from new donors.
  • Qualify for grants related to impact measurement, data, or corporate social responsibility programs –CSR.

Improve your Fundraising, Operations, and the Retention of Employees and Volunteers with an Impact-Data Program

Most data projects start by focusing on expensive and complex technologies. Technologies are a tool but rarely a solution.

In our experience, organizations can collect observed and declared data at a minimal cost during operation. They can then create rich visualizations of impact using affordable off-the-shelf software tools.

These impact data visualizations exponentially increase the morale of staff, volunteers, and local communities. They also substantially impact charitable donations and the development of alternative income sources.

Affordable & Fast

  • Built with your team to ensure execution capacity
  • Using proven off-the-shelf technologies and templates
  • Total Cost of $5,000-$15,000 for small local nonprofits and $25K to $100K for national scope (large foundations) across several issue areas

Our approach to Capital-Efficient Data Strategies under Ethical Principles

We follow a process we have followed many times when defining and implementing a successful and affordable data strategy for small nonprofits, social tech startups, and large foundations in the US.

On average, nonprofits and foundations working with us will save 50% in time, design, and implementation costs compared to deploying their impact-data program alone or contracting tech consulting or nonprofit consulting firms..

Assessment and Roadmap

We start by listening to the frontline staff and volunteers, understanding their processes and needs, and evaluating how the impact data can be observed or gathered under ethical principles.

Quick Prototyping

We create quick prototypes of visualization dashboards and test them with staff, volunteers, and existing and potential donors.

Capital-Efficient Execution

We evaluate off-the-shelf solutions and custom solutions in cases of vast datasets to gather, organize, analyze and visualize impact data continuously.
