Measuring the Impact

You can’t have impact investing without impact. But what is the impact that we want to see when we make an investment? And how do we know if we are successful? Just like in grantmaking, impact investing requires a theory of change and a thoughtful framework for measurement. Join us on December 15th to learn about straightforward, practical approaches to approaching impact measurement from our deeply experienced panel.
