Know Your Impact (it’s really not that difficult to do…)

Versaic CEO Burt Cummings has a few thoughts for companies who don’t want to know the impact of their philanthropy and sponsorship programs.

An acquaintance at a party asked me what my company did and I responded that many of our solutions help companies evaluate, manage, and measure the impact of their philanthropic and sponsorship programs.  He asked what I meant by impact and I used the  example of a company donating to a hunger relief organization.  To assess impact, the company  might want to get information on how many families the organization was able to feed with their donation.
