Funders, donors and beneficiaries are putting increasing pressure on charities to measure their impact. CfE in collaboration with Charity Finance Group and ICAEW has developed a simple and effective method for charities to identify and develop their impact measurements through leveraging the resources of skilled volunteers and combining their expertise with those of the charity’s leadership.
The Practical Approach shows how charities can work with skilled volunteers to identify, establish and develop mission-focused measurements (Key Performance Indicators)
The Practical Approach provides a structured framework for business professionals to apply their management expertise to assist charities while also developing their own skills and experience.
The Practical Approach can also bring benefits to your business
CfE does not charge for its services. The charity is self-funded and relies on charitable donations.
