Small, mighty, and on-the-ground every day, local nonprofits fill service gaps, provide hope, and help make communities more equitable. But when impact data is inaccessible, they consistently miss out, not only on having the data to communicate their success to funders, but also for supporting their staff and improving programs.

Funders are increasingly wanting to level power and eliminate the scarcity mindset through trust-based philanthropy and innovative funding strategies. But they also need to know when partnerships are successful and how their investments are making meaningful progress toward systems change.

The ImpactStory™ Strategy emerged from my work and learning with local nonprofits and their funders over the last 20+ years. The Strategy is unique because it transforms formal program evaluation into a defined set of strategies and processes that can be sustainably used every day by small organizations.

The Strategy allows nonprofits and funders: to be clear about the immediate impact and vision they are working toward, to be confident in the data being collected and how to understand and use it, and to tell compelling impact stories that move people to action: clients to achieve, staff to track progress, programs to improve, funders to invest, volunteers to connect, and partners to collaborate.

The Strategy is used to track mission fulfillment on a path to a vision for systems change. When the Strategy is in place, social sector partners always have their impact story at their fingertips.

The ImpactStory™ Strategy Toolkit includes of instructions, tools, resources, and examples essential for putting the Strategy into place. The Toolkit is the focus of the live, on-line ImpactStory™ Academy. The 9-week Academy orients social sector leaders to all parts of the Strategy, gives them an opportunity to start building their systems.
