Philanthropy Hour Podcast: Jason Saul on Measuring Social Impact

by Greg Cherry– Mar 18 2016


Hosted by Greg Cherry, Jason provides a more detailed look into the metrics and algorithms that drive Mission Measurement, and why it is such a crucial component of lifting the social sector, and improving organizations. For as long as the social sector has existed, funders and change agents alike have remained in the dark when it comes to measuring real performance and impact. How do we crack the code of social impact, and create a real, mainstream economic currency for the value of social change?

CGI Annual Meeting: Mission Measurement’s Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment Announcement Video on the Food Security Genome

Sept 28 2015



Since the Commitment to Action announcement by President Clinton at this year’s CGI Winter Meeting surrounding the Food Security Genome, our consortium members have continued to combine efforts to code this evidence-base, drawing from corporate, NGO, academic and government resources in order to quantify outcomes, identify key success factors and create critical benchmark data in this vital area through this cross-sector partnership. The resulting “genomic” model will turn decades of data into actionable insights that enable users to predict the efficacy and cost per outcome for any food security program.


To learn more about this initiative, please view the Food Security Genome Commitment Announcement video below from the 2015 CGI Annual Meeting last month.





The Food Security Genome Announcement- CGI 2015 Winter Meeting

The Food Security Genome is part of the Impact Genome Project®. It is led by Jason Saul, Founder and CEO of Mission Measurement and Nolan Gasser, Chief Genomic Officer at Mission Measurement and famed architect of Pandora’s Music Genome Project™. Joining Mission Measurement in this effort are eight initial Food Security Genome Consortium members. They include leading corporations/corporate foundations (General Mills Foundation, Tyson Foods, etc.) and leading NGOs (Capital Area Food Bank, CARE, Heifer International and Share Our Strength).


At the 2015 Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Winter meeting, President Clinton announced a new Commitment to Action designed to increase the impact of food security programs. A cross-sector partnership, The Food Security Genome, will systematically code the vast evidence-base drawing from corporate, NGO, academic and government resources in order to quantify outcomes, identify key success factors and create critical benchmark data in this vital area.
