Selected Awards

Impact Matters – 5 star rating

Often, nonprofits communicate only through stories, without accompanying evidence. ImpactMatters is filling this information gap with a rating system that takes explicit account of how much good the nonprofit achieves per dollar of cost. To assign impact ratings, we use publicly available information to estimate the actual impact the nonprofit’s program has on people’s life. We then compare those impact estimates to benchmarks to determine if the nonprofit is cost-effective. A nonprofit receives 5 stars if it is considered highly cost effective.

The Audacious Project, 2018
