A better way to measure the social impact of volunteerism

The private, public, and social sectors have long been stuck on how to define the value of donated time – the inspirational stories and output reporting we’ve all relied on just don’t tell the whole story. We were ready for a better way, so we worked closely with the measurement experts at True Impact to move beyond outputs and look at the real value-add volunteerism – and in particular, skilled volunteerism – can deliver for communities. The result is our Insights & Impact 2020 report: Measuring the Social Impact of Volunteerism, which equips you with practical new ways to calculate the social impact of your volunteers.

Access Insights & Impact 2020: Measuring the Social Impact of Volunteerism today and register for our November 12 webinar with Common Impact’s Danielle Holly and True Impact’s Farron Levy to learn more about the framework outlined in the report.

Katie Stearns

Chief Partnerships Officer, Common Impact

Building nonprofit capacity and engaging volunteers in experiences that transform both them and their communities has been core to my career. As Senior Director of Partnerships at Common Impact, I lead corporate partnerships, storytelling, and strategic alliances, all with the goal of alleviating inequality through skills-based volunteering. Prior to joining Common Impact, I built and led volunteer engagement strategy and partnerships for iMentor Chicago. I also held leadership roles at Points of Light and Chicago Cares, managing turnkey corporate employee engagement programs and large-scale volunteer events. I'm a lifelong volunteer and a native Chicagoan.
