Survey on State of Scaling Impact

Charity Navigator is pleased to share a link to an important study of the State of Scaling Impact Among Nonprofit Organizations and Initiatives, a national research survey being conducted by Growth Philanthropy Network and the Social Impact Exchange (www.socialimpactexchange.org), with assistance from survey experts at Veris Consulting. We encourage you to complete the survey and also pass it along to other nonprofits who are in your network.

Participation in the survey is important - whether or not you are considering or in the process of scaling an initiative. The deadline for submission is Friday, March 23. 

You can access the survey by clicking here  http://verissurveys.com/survey/416460/170d/ 

The goal of this first-of-its-kind survey is to provide funders and the sector at-large with valuable baseline information about the status and readiness for scaling impact among nonprofits and their leaders. For purposes of the survey, ‘scaling impact’ refers to an entity that is scaling its entire organization, a specific program, a model or intervention, a social movement, a policy initiative, a media or advocacy campaign, a marketplace solution, an effort to achieve systemic change, and so on.  The vehicle doesn’t really matter, as long as the goal is to increase social impact. 

As a special thank you for participating, the Exchange will enter your name in a drawing to receive a complimentary registration to their invitation-only 2012 Annual Conference on Scaling Impact and one of three complimentary registrations to their Symposium in June.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
