How it Works

Donors use True Impact to supplement their existing grants and volunteer management systems -- integrated with applications for contributions and/or progress reports -- to monitor and report on their social return on investment (SROI). Steps include:


Create program report

Nonprofits create a universal social impact report for each of their programs or initiatives, containing key descriptive information and quantitative social impacts guided by True Impact’s modeling wizard


Log contributions

Donations of cash, goods, or volunteer time are logged into the system


Issue Impact Receipt

True Impact automatically sends a copy of the report to the donor, including an allocation of how much of the social impact they can claim based on their donation.
