As many philanthropists know, impact measurement data isn’t useful unless it is actually applied to improve an organization’s services. That’s why the European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA), together with Social Value International, has published a free new guide to help social sector funders develop effective impact management systems.

The guide draws on EVPA’s years of experience working with social sector funders to turn impact data into improved outcomes for final beneficiaries. It outlines seven principles of social value and a five-step process that will keep your new system simple, practical, and useful.

If you want to learn how to start using the data you collect to make better investment decisions, you can access the guide here.
