We accelerate organizations through impact
Do you want to know and grow the impact of your organization?
Over the past few years, impact has become one of the buzzwords in the charity sector. However, despite the overall desire to be impactful, most organizations are not (yet) driven by achieving impact.
At HVFC, we know that becoming more impact-driven doesn’t happen overnight. Though desired, such a change seems to many like another mountain to climb — in addition to the fundraising mountain. This is why we developed 5 steps to help you walk through your impact journey with ease and success. Depending on the current situation of your organization, we can either get you started on your journey, accelerate your efforts or navigate you through the more tricky sections of the path.
You will find out that the impact journey is a bumpy ride, but certainly one with a rewarding destination. At the end of this journey, you will have become an organization that is fully geared towards maximizing its contribution to a better world!
we guide you through every step of your impact journey
We guide you in the introduction of measurable impact indicators, and the development of a solid plan to start measuring them.
We assist you with identifying and selecting the interventions to apply to maximize your contribution to reaching your desired change.
We support you with developing strategies and approaches to involve your whole organization in the impact journey.
We help you showcase your impact with potential donors by building an impact-driven proposition, understand and build relationships with donors on impact, and communicate impact clearly.
OUR SPECIFIC solutions
The impact journey starts with defining your desired impact – clearly capturing the ultimate goal in an impact statement. The impact statement is different from a mission statement – it is goal-oriented, involves the entire organization, and should be concise and measurable.
Once you have your impact statement, you have to find out whether your activities actually contribute to it. Therefore, you need to start measuring your impact by developing impact indicators at an organizational level.
Once your impact measurement provides you with impact results, you can start showing impact to the outside world and tell donors and other stakeholders about the genuine change that you have been able to achieve.
Most organizations indicate that the best way to increase impact is to raise more funds. Indeed increased funding can boost your impact, but impact can also be increased when funding levels remain stable. This can be done by focusing on interventions that achieve the most impact per euro spent (so-called cost-effective interventions).
It is no surprise that we call this an impact journey. It is a tour full of challenges and setbacks to convince everyone in the organization to buy into becoming impact-driven. It is a complicated, time-consuming and expensive process but this journey will boost the performance of the organization and attract new donors on the side.
