About Social Impact Research
To ensure that the trillions of dollars that will be invested in the nonprofit sector over the next 50 years results in significant social impact, funders and nonprofits need the same high-quality information that is widely available in the private sector.
Unfortunately, rigorous information on social issue and nonprofit performance in specific sectors is either nonexistent or challenging to access. This is where Social Impact Research (SIR) comes in.
Social Impact Research conducts independent research to acquire an understanding of the most effective approaches for addressing a specific social issue. SIR then analyzes program performance to provide funders and nonprofit leaders with the actionable information needed to make the best decisions for pursuing sustainability and growth.
For nonprofits, SIR analyzes programs by using social issue specific best practices as a yardstick to identify strengths and areas for improvement. SIR’s Peer Performance Exchange takes the analysis one step further by providing nonprofits with tools to act on these new insights.
For funders, SIR conducts comparative analyses of program quality and performance across social issues so they can make better strategic funding decisions.
