Lunch and Learn: Measure the impact of your social enterprise

Register Here for this Lunch and Learn where attendees will learn how to track their impact to attract funding, garner support, and celebrate your achievements. 


Do you want to track your social impact? 

In this session, you will learn how to measure and report on your social purpose organization’s impact. Having this data allows you to demonstrate what you are capable of to funders, make informed business decisions, and celebrate what you have achieved. 

Our presenters will provide tools and resources to support you in building a culture and sustainable practice around impact tracking. 


By the end of this event you will: 

  1. Understand Common Foundations as the minimum standard for the “how” of impact measurement. 
  2. Get familiar with the logic model and become equipped to create your own. 
  3. Learn how to align your work with the SDGs. 

This event will run from 12:00pm-1:30pm EDT. The last 15 minutes will be reserved for Q&A.

Alicia Richins is the Partnerships and Standards Lead for The Approach to Impact Measurement. The Common Approach to Impact Measurement (the Common Approach) is working towards better impact measurement for social purpose organizations. By developing flexible, community-driven standards, our aim is to change the underpinnings of impact measurement away from a primary focus on the impact measurement needs of foundations, grantmakers and impact investors. Instead, we are committed to centering impact measurement on the needs of operating charities, nonprofits and social-purpose businesses and those they serve. Learn more at:
