Making your case for funding: How to prove your impact
The importance of Impact Measurement
To demonstrate that your charity is really changing people's lives, you need some way of assessing your work. Government and private funders are increasingly concerned with getting maximum value for their money, targeting their funding to the charities which achieve the most change. Charities who can show clearly what they are achieving are at a real advantage.
Apricot allows you to really understand your impact, demonstrate value for money and attract further funding.
Apricot allow us to understand fully who we are working with. We can compare data across projects. We can mix and match outcome strands in line with our seven organisational outcomes. We are better able to identify strategic operational, technical, and outcome-based objectives, so that we can maximise our technology’s capabilities to meet our organisation’s outcomes, data collection, and reporting needs.
