The Company

Founded in 2005, Mission Measurement has been a leader in measuring and reporting outcomes for the social sector. In doing so, we have worked with many leading corporations, governments, foundations and charities on measuring outcomes, including Gates Foundation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Disney, TOMS, Allstate, Walgreens, Google.org and many more. Through our direct consulting experience with these partners combined with our own thought leadership to advance the industry, we created The Impact Genome Project – the industry’s largest evidence base of published and unpublished research across 11 social sector domains – to identify the specific intervention components that lead to desired outcomes. This pioneering effort has led to advances in our product offering and the creation of standardized approaches to measurement and reporting through platform products.
