OUR IMPACT MANAGEMENT 

REPORTING GUIDELINE JOURNEY

The launch of the Impact Management Reporting Guideline is the culmination of a collaborative learning and co-creation journey alongside social investors and implementing organisation (NPO) peers in regional Nation Builder communities of South Africa. As we look to #BuildBackBetter in our nation, cementing best practice in impact management reporting will be critical in helping us to understand and communicate our social impact. We need to foster trust, credibility and transparency through clear, consistent and accurate communication of our impact reporting information.

BEST PRACTICE STANDARD 

FOR IMPACT REPORTING

Nation Builder, together with 95 NPOs and funders embarked on an 18-month process to clarify and develop best practice standards in impact management and reporting.

This was led by a national , cross-sector Steering Committee and involved stakeholder interviews and over 40 collaborative workshops in 3 different provinces.
