    SEVEN VARIABLES MEASURING FINANCIAL HEALTH
  • WARNING IN USE OF OUR DATA
    • To make wise giving decisions, our ratings are a "part of the puzzle".
    • Be Proactive In Your Giving - Smart givers ... have targeted outcome goals for their giving....
    • Start A Dialogue To Investigate Its Programmatic Results - assess a charity's programmatic impact , talk with the charity to learn about its accomplishments, goals and challenges . Be prepared to walk away from any charity that is unable or unwilling to participate in this type of conversation.
  • THE PROBLEM
    • Some donors are not taking the additional steps we recommend to assess outcomes
    • They are relying almost entirely on our ratings.
    • While we assume that financially strong organizations are far more likely to be effective in their outcomes, it may not always be the case.
    • Alternatively, charities with mediocre financial strength may not necessarily have mediocre outcomes.
    • Financial Health
    • Accountability & Transparency
    • Outcomes
    THE SOLUTION: 3 COMPONENTS OF A NEW CHARITY EVALUATION SYSTEM
  • www.alleffective.org
  • A SCARY FINDING ON OUTCOME MEASUREMENT
    • We have been testing out what information charities are currently compiling in the area of outcome measurement.
    • We assumed that most charities have SOME system of evaluating their outcomes.
    • So far, less than 10% of the charities we have polled have provided us with meaningful information in this area.
  • HOW CHARITIES CURRENTLY “RATE” All 2% 0-Star Exceptionally Poor 9% 1-Star Poor 23% 2-Star Needs Improvement 36% 3-Star Good 30% 4-Star Excellent
  • HOW MIGHT THEY RATE ON OUTCOMES? All 30% 0-Star Exceptionally Poor 36% 1-Star Poor 23% 2-Star Needs Improvement 9% 3-Star Good 2% 4-Star Excellent
