Impact Accelerator Initiative

Supporting 25,000 Nonprofits with Free Technology and Tools that Accelerate Impact

What is the Impact Accelerator Initiative?

In coordination with UpMetrics' recent 3.0 product release, the Impact Accelerator Initiative provides the nonprofit community free access to our platform and resources to develop an Impact Framework, as well as share their Impact Framework with other organizations to support collective learning and mission-aligned impact on a larger scale.

The goal?

Help 25,000 nonprofit organizations build out impact frameworks at absolutely no cost to them by the end of 2024.

Why is this important?

Empowering the nonprofit community with the resources to more easily own, manage, and share their success measures - both pre- and post-grant award - will improve their ability to make data-driven decisions, attract mission-aligned capital, and inspire others to support or join their cause.

How will we achieve our goal?

To execute on this vision we are asking funders, participating nonprofits, and other mission-driven organizations to partner with us (at no cost) to share and make this program available to nonprofits within their network.

How does an Impact Framework actually help?

Impact Frameworks empower nonprofits to measure, manage, and communicate outcomes in order to accelerate the impact of their mission.

Measure Impact:

  • Prioritizes the most critical information that aligns to a delivery model / purpose
  • Starts to create data infrastructure towards action and inspiration

Manage Impact:

  • Drives ongoing team alignment around strategy, priorities, and performance

Communicate Impact:

  • Helps clearly communicate delivery model, goals and story to external partners
