Learn how we assess the impact of nonprofits

Outcomes and Cost

Outcomes: Changes in the lives of those served by a nonprofit. They can be caused by the nonprofit.

Costs: The money spent by a nonprofit and its partners and beneficiaries.

Impact: Outcome caused by a nonprofit relative to its cost.

Cost-effectiveness: A judgment as to whether the cost was a good use of resources to cause the outcome.


Outcome Metric

Increase in income for a patient with medical conditions


Outcome Data Source

Ratings are based on data the nonprofit itself collects on its work. We use the most recent year with sufficient data. Typically, this data allows us to calculate direct changes in participants' lives, such as increased income.


Outcome data collected during the program. The nonprofit publicly reports data on the dollar value of all financial assistance provided to patients, which we use to calculate the additional income received.


Method for Attributing Outcomes

We don't know if the observed changes were caused by the nonprofit's program or something else happening at the same time (e.g., a participant got a raise). To determine causation, we take the outcomes we observe and subtract an estimate of the outcomes that would have happened even without the program (i.e., counterfactual outcomes).


We estimate the dollar amount of financial assistance attributable to the nonprofit by comparing the financial assistance given by the nonprofit to the financial assistance that would have been provided in the absence of the nonprofit (the "counterfactual"). In this case, we estimate the counterfactual to be zero based on two assumptions. First, we assume there is functionally no upper limit to the amount of cash transfers that continue to be valuable to patients as they are far from reaching the point of diminishing marginal returns, such that aid provided by one nonprofit does not displace aid provided by another. Second, we assume that nonprofits work independently and do not coordinate the provision of aid to the same patient. As a result, all aid provided by the nonprofit to patients with medical conditions can be directly attributable to the nonprofit.


Cost Data Source

After estimating the program's outcomes, we need to determine how much it cost to achieve those outcomes. All monetary costs are counted, whether they are borne by a nonprofit service deliverer or by the nonprofit’s public and private partners.


Program cost data reported by the nonprofit. Partner and beneficiary costs reported by the nonprofit or estimated by Charity Navigator.


Cost Calculation

$76,882 program costs + $0 partner costs + $0 beneficiary costs = $76,882 total costs


Impact and Determination

We calculate impact, defined as the change in outcomes attributable to a program divided by the cost to achieve those outcomes.

Impact Calculation

$76,882 total costs / 75,524 of financial assistance provided = roughly $200 provides $200 in financial assistance to a patient in need.

Benchmark for Rating

Impact & Results scores of financial assistance to patients programs are based on income generated relative to cost. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they increase income for a recipient by more than $1.50 for every $1 spent and a score of 75 if income increases by more than $0.85 for every $1 spent. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the benchmark for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.

Determination

Highly cost-effective

Story of Adaptability

The nonprofit has an opportunity to tell the story of how the organization adapted to tremendous external changes in the last year.


COVID-19 had a positive impact on our fundraising results for FYE 2020. Despite the loss of income generated from events and other challenges, 2020 was our second highest year in terms of revenues in our 17-year history. During the early days of the pandemic, the demand for food and shelter (via our Emergency Financial Assistance Program) intensified given the unprecedented circumstances striking hard the population we serve. In addition to fighting childhood cancer, most of the families served contracted the virous and/or experienced loss of income. By mid-April we started a campaign, “Together We Will Overcome COVID-19” which informed our donors and grantors the need for frontline rapid response funds. We promoted the campaign via emails to grantors, Newsletter e-blasts and a Facebook fundraiser on our Page. By the end of May the results of the campaign proved to be successful raising a total of $85,000. Added unexpected funding was provided by the Paycheck Protection Program. Also, later in the year we received multiple donations from a new funder who noticed the impact our programs had on those we serve. The private foundation’s donations added up to the largest gift we have ever received in a single year from a single donor. During 2020 we were able to replenish program funds so we could seamlessly continue serving the most vulnerable during the pandemic. 15% more families were served in 2020 (compared to the previous year) representing 440 individuals.

Briefly describe a recent change that your organization made in response to feedback from the people you serve.

We added a food and travel aid program so that families can have access to a loaded credit card for purchasing food at any grocery store, pumping gas at any gas station and being able to pay for Taxi/Uber/Lyft (anywhere in the country). Although we still provide gift cards for groceries and gas, these options are best covered with above mentioned credit card which avoids having to deal with bulky gift cards and losses in the mail and provides the flexibility of being to make purchases at any grocery store or gas station.



Methodology


Charity Navigator believes nonprofit organizations that engage in inclusive practices, such as collecting feedback from the people and communities they serve, may be more effective. We've partnered with GuideStar by Candid to survey organizations about their feedback practices. Nonprofit organizations can fill out the How We Listen section of their Candid profile to receive a rating.


Charity Navigator awards full credit for this Beacon to every nonprofit that is eligible for an Encompass Rating that completes the survey, in recognition of their willingness to publicly share this information with the nonprofit and philanthropic communities. This data is not evaluated for quality at this time. Validation will be added in future iterations of this Beacon.

Analysis and Research


Like the overall Encompass Rating System, the Culture & Community Beacon is designed to evolve as metrics are developed and ready for integration. Our partnership with Feedback Labs and Guidestar by Candid, and other partners including Fund for Shared Insight, GlobalGiving, and Keystone Accountability, enables us to launch the first version of this beacon with Constituent Feedback information collected on Candid's site.


Feedback practices have been shown to support better Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion outcomes, an essential area of assessment that we intend to further expand and develop in the future. Feedback Labs has documented several studies which indicate that beyond achieving organizational goals, nonprofits that are attentive and responsive to concerns and ideas raised by beneficiaries establish stronger relationships with the people they serve, promote greater equity, and empower constituents in ways that can help to ensure better long-term outcomes.
