Impact Analysis

What is impact analysis?

Impact analysis typically involves collecting data and information about the programs and activities of an NPO, and using that information to measure and evaluate the organization's impact on its target community. This can include looking at the outcomes of the organization's programs, such as the number of people served or the results of any assessments or surveys conducted. It can also include analyzing the organization's processes and practices to determine whether they are effective and efficient.

In addition to collecting and analyzing data, impact analysis often involves consulting with stakeholders, such as community members, donors, and other organizations, to gain a deeper understanding of the organization's impact. This can help the NPO to identify any challenges or barriers that it may be facing, as well as to identify opportunities for growth and improvement.

Overall, the goal of impact analysis is to provide NPOs with a comprehensive view of their impact and to help them to make informed decisions about their programs and activities. By conducting regular impact analysis, NPOs can ensure that they are meeting their goals and making a positive difference in the communities they serve.

Unified Donors and Beneficiaries

Questionnaires and Surveys

Impact refers to the changes, both positive or negative, that occur to beneficiaries as a result of a program or intervention. This is typically assessed through a series of steps, including:

  • Administer a before survey to participants before the program starts.
  • Implement the program or intervention.
  • Administer an after survey to participants after the program ends.
  • Compare the results of the before and after surveys to assess any changes in attitudes, behaviors, or knowledge.
  • Analyze the impact of the program on participants and identify shifts in thinking.

Surveys can be designed to open as a full page with questions arranged by tab. Each survey should include a date when it was administered. Each question should have a set list of possible answers, which should be evenly distributed and not allow for a neutral response. Questions should be clear and direct, avoiding vague or open-ended language.

Surveys can be administered online or using a mobile app to capture responses electronically. This allows for efficient data collection and analysis. It is important to ensure that the survey is properly designed and administered to accurately measure the intended outcome.

Once surveys have been captured you can run an impact analysis report.
