Summary
Identifying, measuring and improving social impact is a significant challenge for corporate and private foundations, charities, NGOs and corporations. How best to balance possible social and environmental benefits (and costs) against one another? How does one bring clarity to multiple possibilities and opportunities? Based on years of research and new field studies from around the globe, Epstein and Yuthas have written a book for managers that is grounded in the best academic and managerial research. This practical guide describes the steps needed for identifying, measuring and improvingsocial impact. This systematic approach is useful in maximizing and assessing the impact of different types of investments, including grants and donations, impact investments, and commercial investments. Epstein and Yuthas personally interviewed leaders at more than 60 different organizations for this book and include examples from nearly 100 more. This is unquestionably the most complete, practical, and thoroughly-researched guide to taking a rigorous, data-driven approach to expanding the good you do in the world. It will be essential reading in organizations that are looking for a reliable and proven approach to measuring their philanthropic efforts
