Can you suggest how I might help our board have conversations about our impact?

Absolutely! Our eight Getting to Impact Discussion Guides are designed to help you facilitate discussions among your board members or local community of grantmakers with one purpose: to explore and strengthen a commitment to impact with your giving.

We suggest you start with the first discussion guide, Why Every Foundation Can and Should Have Impact, which helps you understand the impact, the importance of pursuing it, and a basic framework for achieving it.

You might also find helpful our publications Getting to Impact Through PlanningGetting to Impact Through Evaluation, or our 10-Minute Impact Assessment.
