The Excellence in Giving Research team specializes in Outcomes Measurement so high-capacity donors can know if they are supporting high-performing charities. In 1-2 years carefully designed surveys produce Impact Reports about the extent of transformation compared to a baseline or benchmark.
Excellence in Giving has set up outcomes measurement processes for global organizations during the past 7 years, including Willow Creek’s Global Leadership Summit, David C Cook’s Global Mission, Haggai Institute and Langham Partnership. Each nonprofit uses the results to (1) improve programs, (2) motivate staff, (3) recruit program participants, and (4) report impact to donors. Who doesn't want to know their impact and how they can improve?
