Bridging the gap between being a charity and an effective business is a difficult task for any charitable organisation. Seeking to help others, your primary focus is on external factors and the internal requirements of your organisation are often deemed to be of secondary importance.
But donors seek certainty. They want to know that their money will be allocated responsibly, by people with enough relevant experience to make their philanthropic efforts effective.
In other words, they want an organisation that can demonstrate its own stability. From the Board, to financial allocation and hiring processes; donors are not just giving to a cause they believe in, but to an organisation they can trust.
The Impact Suite allows charities to demonstrate their compliance to Best Practice methodology through creating a transparent set of guidelines and requirements. When there is less confusion, donors feel more confident and conversations with charities are focused where they should be – on the good that is being done by your organisation.
