Results reporting: Momentum for Non-profits to Demonstrate Effectiveness

These last few years, watchdog agencies and donors have increasingly created demand and interest in results reporting for Non-profits.  In January, 2013, Charity Navigator released its final rating approach for results.The focus is on a charity’s design, monitoring, and evaluation with the idea charities who design and evaluate programs transparently will be more accountable and more effective.  CN’s new rating approach is not an A vs. B rating, comparing one charity to another, but rather rating the individual charity to a yard stick and assessing how they measure up to CN’s expectation.  This has the potential to push charities towards more effective methods, and also draw out evidence which, until now, was not provided publically.

Recently World Vision released its own Impact reporting 1.0 – a first version of webpages which publish impact in terms of outputs, outcomes, and its unique approach to programming.  It’s a step in a direction to provide visibility to the public not only on what it recently did, but also how it has evolved over 60+ years of ministry.  These webpages are not perfect, but it’s a large step in a new direction, and one I hope empowers greater effectiveness in the future.
