Measuring Social Impact

How do we know if we’re succeeding?  We’re currently working with a US-based CDFI to refine and implement a usable and informative set of financial and impact metrics.

As part of the process, we’ve uncovered some great examples from other funds.   Here are some of the best:

  • SJF Ventures Impact Report – documents the impact of this 15-year old venture capital partnership
  • The Reinvestment Fund – Impact Report from the Philadelphia-based CDFI
  • Vermont Community Loan Fund’s most recent annual Social Impact Report – (Disclaimer – I still serve on one of their loan committees and was the founding Director…)

If you have other examples, please share them!
