About True Impact

True Impact is a social impact measurement platform that helps social change leaders like you at purpose-driven enterprises demonstrate how their cash, volunteerism, and in-kind donations translate into concrete results.

Our Philosophy

The True Impact team takes a pragmatic approach to measurement.

First, we believe that evaluation is a means to an end, and not an end in itself. So, if a metric doesn't help you to either prove or improve the value of your program, then why collect it? We right-size your measurement approach.

Second, we believe measurement doesn't have to be hard or resource-intensive. Indeed, if it is, it will fail. We make it easy for you.

Third, we believe you and your nonprofit partners are doing the important work. Measurement and evaluation folks like us are here to serve you, and not the other way around. We meet you where you are.

Our Mission

A social sector that achieves greater things through better data.

Our Vision

To promote more, and more successful, social investment by enabling donors and service providers to determine what works, and ways to do things better, through shared measurement and reporting.

18 Years of Measuring Impact

Over 18 years of working with more than 140 companies and thousands of their nonprofit partners, we've become experts at balancing the rigor you need in a true CSR impact measurement solution, with practical implementation approaches that don't overburden you or your nonprofit partners. We’ve worked with PepsiCo, Dow, Deloitte, GSK, Timberland, and dozens of other companies to use practical measurement processes to drive more—and more successful—social investment. Together, we determine what works and find ways to do things better.
