Social Impact Measurement & Management

It is a fact: a strong majority of nonprofit CEOs indicate an interest in programs, tools, and resources that would bolster their organization’s capacity to manage and measure program impact. The ASU Lodestar Center works in varying capacities involving social impact measurement.

  • The ASU Lodestar Center surveyed 80 nonprofit CEOs about their organizations’ impact measurement practices (May 2013). Measuring the performance and impact of programs is important to nonprofit CEOs: 93 percent agree that program impact measures are an important tool for decision-making. The Center has produced an infographic summarizing the survey results that includes current practices, trends, and needs.
  • Additional training is also available for the individual and can be found within the Nonprofit Management Institute’s (NMI) Social Impact Measurement Certificate.
  • Customized, facilitated training for your organization is available through our Culture of Evaluation workshops
