So, you are understanding that your social impact is important, but you might still be pondering “What exactly IS social impact?”. If you are asking yourself this question, you are not alone and you’re in the right place to have your questions answered!

The answer you have been looking for: plain and simple your social impact is the data behind how effective or ineffective the program(s) in your organization or business are to the community or people you are serving. Your social impact data tells the story behind all the hard work you do day in and day out.

Here are a couple of examples of how data tells a beautiful story of how constituents are served through the work done by companies & organizations.

It is important to know the true value your organization is providing to its community! A social impact report is a perfect way to become confident in the true value you provide to your constituents. While you always strive to provide a positive impact, a report can also tell you where your organization might be lacking or where you could serve individuals better. Positive impact is the goal and sometimes we have to learn & grow from pitfalls before reaching the highest good. Your social impact report will give you the hard data so you can share with the world your true value and also improve your organization along the way.
