What configuration is best for you?
Here is how we are helping some of our current customers.
Single Giving Program (e.g., grants only)
Focused on a company’s single priority investment approach (e.g., grants, volunteering, or pro bono support) for multiple cause areas for a select group of nonprofit partnerships (typically fewer than 50 programs).
Client example: A company that wants to better understand the impact of their cash grants to nonprofits addressing hunger, education, and STEM career development.
Benchmarking by Cause Area
A collaborative benchmarking solution based on data from dozens of corporate donors and hundreds of their charitable partners. This comparative analysis gives access to standardized indicators, benchmarks, and best practices—all prepared by True Impact. Sample causes include Health, Hunger, Homelessness, Education, STEM Education, Youth Development, Environment, and others.
Client example: A CSR department that wants to provide their corporate leaders with information on how their social impact strategies compare to peer programs and best practices in the field.
Volunteer ROI Employee Survey
A post-volunteer event survey capturing and benchmarking the external social value (i.e, money saved by nonprofits) and internal business impacts (e.g., job satisfaction, skills development, recruiting, sales, stakeholder relations, and brand) of employee engagement activities.
Client example: A company wants to track their annual community clean up day to measure year-over-year and peer performance in employee engagement and learning, team development, and strengthened community relationships.
A comprehensive impact evaluation that covers a company’s corporate grants, volunteerism, and employee giving programs. Includes impact evaluation across cause areas and employee volunteer surveys for capturing and benchmarking business impacts for companies with a single philanthropic investment mechanism (e.g., corporate giving).
