Charting Impact was recently launched as a collaboration between the BBB Wise Giving Alliance, Guidestar, and Independent Sector.
It is a simple tool that gives organizations an opportunity to concisely tell the public what they have done in the past, what they plan to do in the future, and how they plan to get there. It is designed to get beyond the focus on expense ratios and overhead in regards to charity effectiveness, and allows us to see what is actually being accomplished in charities both large and small.
It will help donors assess very quickly which organizations are really furthering the causes most dear to them and which organizations are simply wasting time and money.
I encourage all Kansas City Nonprofits to take part in this important project.
