Tris Lumley explains how NPC and others are aiming to make impact measurement accessible for all charities, large and small.
Charities must make sure they are answering the right questions, say Tris Lumley and Katherine Smithson.
New Philanthropy Capital, CFDG and Acevo have launched a universal set of principles for impact reporting and are looking for feedback from chief executives, finance directors, fundraisers and grantmakers.
The prediction that 2011 will be the year of the mobile looks more and more likely to bear fruit as three different organisations launch SMS and mobile giving services this week.
Charities must be prepared to be open not just about costs, but about what they have achieved, argues Tris Lumley.
A Times article last weekend that encouraged the public not to give money to face-to-face fundraisers based its story on two-year-old Intelligent Giving blog entries and significantly misrepresented a senior figure from New Philanthropy Capital, the organisation claims.
