True Impact integrates with any grants or volunteer management system.

We became a B Corporation because promoting this certification, and contributing to the resources of the B Corporation network, is a great complement to our own organizational mission to help the social sector become more efficient and effective.

The Change We Seek®

Our vision is a social sector that achieves greater impact through better data. Our mission is to promote more, and more successful, social investment by enabling donors and service providers to determine what works, and ways to do things better, through shared measurement and reporting.
