EVPA Case Studies on Impact Measurement

Impact measurement has been recognised as one of the three key practices of Venture Philanthropy (VP), together with tailored financing and organisational support. EVPA recommends that venture philanthropy organisations (VPOs) measure impact using the five-step model proposed in the report “A Practical Guide to Measuring and Manging Impact”, and EVPA’s work on impact measurement is a key building block for the European Commission’s Standard on impact measurement.

Despite the centrality of impact measurement in the VP approach and of the large uptake of the five steps, many VPOs still consider it difficult to implement impact measurement in their daily practice, and ask for more guidance as of the DOs and DON’Ts of impact measurement.

The two case studies presented in this report aim to fill this knowledge gap, by providing examples of how two leading organisations – Investisseurs et Partenaires (I&P) and Reach for Change – have developed their own impact measurement system and how they have dealt with issues such as proportionality, attribution and additionality. 

Starting from the five-step IM process proposed by EVPA, the authors have underlined the main recommended methodology to be used to complete each step and the main criticalities to be considered at each step of the impact measurement process.
