Consultant


Mission Measurement (MM) is the world leader in outcomes-based measurement.  We help governments, companies, and foundations around the world to measure, report, and improve the results of social impact investments/grantmaking.   We believe social outcomes can be standardized, defined, and measured consistently. 

To standardize impact reporting, MM created the Impact Genome (“IG”): the social sector’s leading impact platform. The IG is a modern toolkit for maximizing the impact of every dollar spent on social change. We created the IG to curate the world’s evidence base and develop universal standards for social impact measurement. MM helps clients align their programs/grants and reporting to these evidence-based outcomes and core components. This enables organizations to aggregate their impact, benchmark their results (against the sector or within their portfolio), and understand how to grow their impact going forward.
