Free Social Impact Toolbox
November 6th, 2019
When it comes to evaluating social impact only a minority of organisations in Australia are currently equipped to meet the expectations of funders and other stakeholders. UTS Business School and Community Sector Banking have released a free Social Impact Toolbox to build the capacity of the not-for-profit sector by making accessible the tools and methodologies needed to evaluate and communicate social impact.
By building the capacity of the sector we can develop a common language, empower small to medium organisations, and take the anxiety and expense out of mastering the practice of evaluation. Use this toolbox to map to standardised frameworks, including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
When we don’t evaluate the impact of our programs, we have no way of measuring whether or not the program achieved what it set out to do. We need a clear way of knowing when we have reached the finish line – because if we don’t know what we are measuring, we can’t measure it!
If you are new to evaluation there is further assistance. Free online training modules to build your evaluation capacity are available. Engage with students across the globe, learning from social impact experts. These modules will introduce you to the language of evaluation, walk you through the frameworks used in evaluation, and address some of the implementation considerations – including sector trends and ethical guidelines.
