Social Impact Measurement for Civil Society Organizations
The project intends to empower the operation of non-profits within Civil Society by enhancing their effectiveness, transparency and governance through the application of social impact measurement methods.
THE state of the non-profit organizations
Transparency, accountability and evaluation
In Europe, the creation of a large number of non-profits that are involved in the provision of a wide range of social activities is noticed. This trend is not accompanied by systematic practices/tools of transparency, accountability and evaluation. As a result, people tend not to truly trust non-profits, consequently, they cannot prove or measure systematically in an objective way their social impact. A common methodology and approach should be agreed upon which all non-profits could apply.
