Improve your nonprofit’s effectiveness using the Charting Impact Guide From BBB Wise Giving Alliance, GuideStar, and the Independent Sector.
The Charting Impact Guide encourages strategic thinking about what it will take to achieve your nonprofit’s goals. By answering five simple, but important questions in the Charting Impact Guide, your nonprofit will produce a concise report that contains detailed information about your plans, progress, and vision for the world. The report is a great resource to share with key stakeholders, including donors and the general public.
In the “Charting Impact” guide, you will find:
- Five important questions that every nonprofit should be able to answer
- Information that shows you why the questions are important to answer
- Guidelines for completing the exercise, including a list of materials to prepare before you answer the questions with key stakeholders
- Effective writing techniques for assembling your organization’s “Charting Impact” report
Length: 9 pages
You should discuss the questions in this guide with key members of your organization, which might include staff, board members, constituents, donors, and volunteers. You’ll need to set aside 2-3 hours for the discussion (depending the size and format of your meeting), but preparation and follow-up will also require an estimated 7-14 hours of staff time, according to the creators of the Charting Impact Guide.
