Demonstrating Value can amplify your impact
The Demonstrating Value Projects section of the site showcases some of the novel and innovative ways that the tools and framework have been applied.
Industry or Sector Collaborations
We are receptive to proposals for sector-specific collaborations or other specialized applications of the Demonstrating Value tools and framework.
For example: In 2011 we started a collaborative project with the BC Association of Farmers' Markets to create an impact evaluation toolkit specifically for Farmers' Market managers.
We have another seed-stage project to develop practical tools for assessing the impact of affordable housing developments.
Demonstrating Value is an excellent complementary tool to reporting standards and frameworks like SROI, GRI, IRIS, ISO 26000, or other industry-specific benchmarking programs.
Tools for Funders or Umbrella Organizations
Demonstrating Value was designed to with the needs of funders as well as entrepreneurs in mind. We welcome the opportunity to work with granting foundations or other philanthropic projects to design reporting systems that build the organizational capacity of your grantees.
The Vancity Communtiy Foundation's Social Enterprise Portfolio program is one of Canada's leading edge, innovative supporters of social enterprise development. Demonstrating Value is the chosen format for Portfolio grantees to report on their business development and mission performance.
