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!
