Evaluating Community Impact, Publications

This paper profiles the work of a handful of innovative organizations in the social sector that have “developed web-based systems for reporting the performance, measuring the outcomes; and coordinating the efforts of hundreds or even thousands of social enterprises within a field.” It examines twenty efforts to develop shared approaches to performance, outcome, or impact measurement across multiple organizations. The accompanying appendices include a short description of each system and four more in-depth case studies.
