Nonprofit Impact Measurement and Reporting

At Sopact, we understand that many nonprofit organizations need help raising grants and communicating their programs' impact. While collecting feedback from beneficiaries and stakeholders can help, more is required. Our team of experts works shoulder to shoulder with you to understand your program goals, build a robust logic model, and develop practical survey questions and data collection processes. Simply providing question-by-question impact reporting is not enough. Instead, we work with you to create richer insights into your program based on stakeholder demographics, NPS score, satisfaction, and qualitative and quantitative feedback.

At Sopact, we go beyond just providing survey tools. We work with you to build effective impact dashboards within 60 days and even help you develop impactful storytelling reports. Our approach has helped organizations raise millions of dollars in grants, and we're confident that we can help you too. With Sopact by your side, you can maximize the impact of your nonprofit programs and take your organization to new heights.

Mission-Focused Impact Measurement

Measuring impact helps nonprofits stay on track with their mission, prioritize effectiveness, and create a streamlined approach to social impact.

Credibility through Impact Accountability

Measuring and reporting impact enhances a nonprofit's integrity and credibility, demonstrating a commitment to impact accountability and quality.

Value Creation through Impact Evidence

Impact evidence creates value for nonprofits, enabling them to leverage untapped value, gain a competitive advantage, and achieve more impactful results.

Sopact vs. The Rest

Comparing Your Options

A data-driven approach to social impact programs is essential if you're a corporate looking to move towards CSR 2.0 and become more intentional with your community investment. However, implementing such an approach can be challenging, especially if you need a clear theory of change or an understanding of the social return on investment.  This is precisely what Audible, an Amazon company, Birth Equity, Boys to Men, Talent Beyond Boundaries, Encoprs, and many others found when they partnered with Sopact.

To address this challenge, you have three options. First, choose the option that best fits your corporate social impact program needs. Remember, a systematic approach that combines impact and technology expertise is essential for success.

Hire consultant First

The first option, hiring a consultant, is a common approach but comes with significant challenges. Consultants may need more expertise in aligning data collection and selecting practical data analysis tools, resulting in delayed implementation time and additional costs. Additionally, a social impact program requires a solid commitment to data ownership, and only an experienced consultant can guide you better. However, it would be best if you took full ownership with a long-term commitment from management.

Build your system

On the other hand, building your system internally requires a collaborative strategy tool like Sopact, an essential criterion for effective impact strategy implementation. Even if you use off-the-shelf tools for data collection and visualization, you'll still face significant challenges cleaning up, transforming, and integrating data collection. These tools are not designed to unify output/activities and outcome data nor to learn output and outcome together. A social impact program requires significant collaboration, metrics alignment, and different data collection techniques.

Sopact + Impact Cloud

The third option is to work with Sopact and Impact Cloud, combining 30+ years of experience working with leading corporates and the leading impact measurement and management platform. This solution can streamline your impact strategy, data collection, and dashboard in 60 days. By working with experts from day one, you can save time and money and quickly achieve your impact goals.

Therefore, it's essential to approach impact measurement systematically, with a clear understanding of your goals and the necessary tools to achieve them. Collaborating with an expert in data analytics and impact management, like Sopact, can help you align your strategy, data collection, and data visualization, leading to better impact measurement outcomes. Working with an experienced implementer will help you achieve your desired results in impact measurement.
