Like other areas of business, leaders responsible for philanthropic investments and employee volunteering want to demonstrate their value-add to the company. There is increased pressure to tie philanthropy and volunteerism to the triple bottom line. Research studies champion that philanthropy and volunteerism can provide tangible internal and external benefits for corporations. The truth is, measuring a company’s social impact is not easy. However, it is important to validate the role of philanthropy and volunteerism in corporate responsibility and citizenship. So, how do you know what is important to measure? What is the impact story you want to share? How does measurement support strategic goals and objectives? During this webinar, we’ll explore these questions, as well as how measurement is used to demonstrate ROI, current trends and how practitioners are responding, tools to support effective measurement, and steps to advance your company’s measurement journey.
