Non-profit organizations that communicate strong data-driven performance through impact reporting enjoy a range of benefits, such as stronger, more enduring donation streams, more volunteers engagement, and amplified mission. Despite the potential benefits of effective impact reporting NGOs often see this form of reporting as a burden. Impact reporting is not to just meet funder’s expectations but to learn from it to make programs better. Impact reporting is not the end but it is a process.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), sustainability standards (ie.Environment-Sustainability Governance) and other impact investment standards have challenged both the public and private sector to amplify the outcomes of purpose-driven work. Part of this challenge involves aligning impact reporting & communicating the difference you have made to the impact categories outlined in these standards. With this global call to action across multiple impact categories, it has redefined the expectations of those who fund these programs and services. How to make all these mission-driven organizations “Missions Aligned” and manage their impact with real data? How to leverage the learnings to amplify the social impact?
Ektta engages with the non-profit to make them mission aligned and able to prove with the real data. We use many methodologies and standards to build the framework with organization and program structure, Theory of change, metrics selection and data strategy.
