Impact & Results Score

Score
100/100
Program Name: Merchandise Distribution
Program Name: Merchandise Distribution

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Delivering Good distributes donated merchandise to people in need through a network of nonprofit and government partners. This merchandise is donated by corporations to Delivering Good and includes clothing, school supplies, and home goods.
Impact Statement
$27 generates $50 in cost savings for a person living in poverty or affected by disaster.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of product donation programs are based on the boost in savings to beneficiaries relative to cost. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they increase savings for a beneficiary by more than $1.50 for every $1 spent and a score of 75 if savings increases by more than $0.85 for every $1 spent. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of Delivering Good.
Data Source
Output data collected during the program. Delivering Good provided to us an estimate of the total dollars saved by beneficiaries.
Method for Attributing Outcomes
We assume that all products donated to beneficiaries offset purchases beneficiaries would otherwise have made from a retailer. We believe this assumption is plausible because the products provided by Delivering Good are essential items like clothes and home goods that beneficiaries would likely have purchased on their own had Delivering Good not intervened. The cost savings (or, equivalently, increase in income) are equal to the estimated price beneficiaries would have otherwise paid for equivalent goods.
