Evaluate Any Program Using Evidence Based Analysis
Using the Impact Genome®, any current or future social program can be evaluated within seconds by matching its “DNA” (or program features) to the evidence base of other rigorously evaluated programs.

What is the quality and reliability of the impact data the program collects? Is there opportunity to
In addition to a detailed report, each Impact Genome Program Evaluation comes with a 1-page executive summary offering a digestible snapshot of the program and its impact; great for donors, executives, and board members.
Implementers: improve program design and measurement to increase impact
Foundations: evaluate the potential of new or existing programs pre-funding
Impact Investors and Social Finance: incorporate expected social impact into ROI calculations
