About Impact Reporting

ImpactMatters connects smart givers to high impact nonprofits, helping both do more good.

Here's how it works. Nonprofits go through a free, guided process to quantify their impact, called impact reporting. The platform asks for data in a highly structured format and runs the data through algorithms that follow the best social science principles. The end result is an impact estimate that quantifies philanthropic success.

ImpactMatters shares those estimates with Charity Navigator, providing donors with information about how to maximize their impact.



Impact estimates from existing data

If you have some data on outcomes or important intermediary changes in behavior, such as increased hand-washing, you are eligible. You do not need to have conducted an evaluation, such as a randomized controlled trial.



One on One

A member of our team will coach you through each step in the process. We will help identify the right outcome, guide any calculations and ensure everything is entered correctly.



Nonprofits start with data of varying quality. Our platform is intended to make the most of data that exists — while helping nonprofits identify where to improve. We work with nonprofits to correctly enter information and guide them through decisions. Data is fed through algorithms based on modern social science principles. The final product — an impact report — includes the methodology used to create the report, how the data was collected and, all important, how the nonprofit estimated what would have happened without the program (the counterfactual).
