Impact Report

The impact report provides an overview of your activities and their impact on target groups and society as a whole. At the same time, the impact report can be used as a planning and organizational development tool. Furthermore, it supports you in legitimizing the effectiveness of your organization vis-à-vis donors and in communicating it to cooperation partners, employees, members and other stakeholders.

An impact report consists of the following contents:

  • Societal problem: initial situation, extent of the problem, causes and consequences of the problem
  • Solution approach: previous solution approaches and your solution approach based on the impact logic / impact chain this includes description of output and direct target groups, outcome and impact on direct and indirect target groups
  • Resources, achievements, impacts in the reporting period: resources used (inputs), achievements (outputs) and impacts (outcomes/impact), measures for accompanying evaluation and quality assurance, comparisons with the previous year
  • Planning, goals and outlook: including opportunities & risks
  • Organizational structure & team, cooperations
