Putting a Price Tag on Social Impact:
How to Quantify the Value of Your Outcomes
As CARES Act dollars begin to dissipate, nonprofits are scrambling to replace funding that has been essential to the sustainability of their organizations over the past year. Grants are becoming increasingly competitive regardless of the cause, meanwhile, the core individual donor base hasn’t quite realized full economic recovery. How can your organization take critical steps now to become more appealing to donors, funders, sponsors, and grantors, and ensure long-term sustainability in this new post-pandemic world?
Organizations that can demonstrate and communicate their social impact—including articulating their social return on investment (SROI), will be the organizations that will win across these multiple sources of funding.
Join Measurement Resources Company and SureImpact, Inc. founder and CEO, Sheri Chaney Jones, as she shares how you can select the right measures and use outcomes data to communicate the impact your programs and services generate, in order to prove your value to multiple stakeholder groups—all while increasing trust and an affinity for your organization’s mission. As a bonus, Sheri will share her proven formula for calculating your organization’s or individual program’s social return on investment (SROI), so that you can tout the value of your outcomes to the world.

Measurement Resources provides services and strategies to help government and nonprofit organizations use performance measurement to improve programs, outcomes, and lives.
Our president, Sheri Chaney Jones, founded the organization in 2008 with a bold goal: Help every mission-driven organization use measurement to accelerate social change.
Measurement is a powerful tool. Organizations that implement measurement systems turn data into outcomes. Staff see more opportunities, uncover obstacles sooner, and discover untapped efficiencies. They have better data to demonstrate impact, increase visibility, and raise funds. Measurement moves great missions forward.
We have created a High-Performance Measurement Framework™ that combines best practices in industrial and organizational psychology, program evaluation, and data collection to make it easy for teams to implement performance measures that can drive better outcomes. We can help your team move from data collection for collection’s sake, to measurement for insight, action, and impact.
