Charities and funders must communicate about impact measurement. I spent yesterday at Koç University Social Impact Forum’s (KUSIF) Social Impact Conference in Istanbul.

Charities and funders must communicate about impact measurement

There, I spoke to a range of stakeholders from the non-profit world in Turkey about how they can measure their social impact. It was a fascinating day, and I gleaned several insights which I thought I’d share. There are some interesting differences between the UK and Turkey. Like NPC, KUSIF has researched the motivations and practice of non-profits with regards to impact measurement. Their research shows a lot more positivity towards impact measurement than NPC’s equivalent UK survey. But there are also a lot of similarities in the challenges faced by funders and charities. During my sessions, we spent quite of bit of time in talking about this issue. Q & A: Catherine Clark on Impact Investing -

INGOs of the future: Redefining the vanguard of corporate-nonprofit partnership.

Bricolage, or tinkering in French, is an increasingly common term in social innovation circles, particularly in resource-constrained environments in which taking advantage of available ideas and frameworks is the de facto recipe for innovation.

INGOs of the future: Redefining the vanguard of corporate-nonprofit partnership

And what social innovator driven by a desire to create change doesn’t like to tinker? For the nonprofit sector, bricolage might involve identifying the forces that prevent systems change and realigning the actors and resources involved in addressing a social issue to optimize collaboration and impact. FSG’s Shared Value Initiative has been convening a group of leading international nongovernmental organizations to rethink, renovate and transform their approach to partnership with companies. In the spirit of bricolage, these INGOs are exploring practical, cost-effective ways to transform their relationships with corporate partners and, over the long-term, change the dynamics that hold outdated corporate-nonprofit relationship norms in place.
