Estimating impact

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. During the process, we ask for data in a highly structured format and run the data through algorithms that follow the best social science principles. The end result is an impact estimate that quantifies philanthropic success.

Finally, we share those estimates with Charity Navigator, providing donors with information about how to maximize their impact.
