Happy Holidays & Reflecting on 2017

Happy Holidays & Reflecting on 2017
By Claire Robertson-Kraft

As 2018 approaches, ImpactED would like to wish our partners, clients, and friends a joyful holiday season and a happy new year. Thank you for being a part of our community.

We also invite you to read our annual report, which describes our achievements over the past year. This year, we partnered with a diverse group of organizations—from startup nonprofits to city- and state-level agencies—with an array of focus areas, including education, arts and culture, public space, and sustainability. Highlights from our year include:

Evaluation: We completed six evaluations for nonprofits and governmental agencies, issuing findings and recommendations that will accelerate their impact.

Development: Ten Philadelphia-area organizations completed our inaugural Social Impact Collaborative, an intensive training program that helps organizations collect, analyze, and use data more strategically.

Partnership with Fels: In fall 2017, ImpactED established new headquarters within the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government. Our partnership with the school will help us to bridge the worlds of research and practice.

In the new year, ImpactED looks forward to continuing to support the vital work of Philadelphia public and nonprofit institutions, remaining committed to our core values of empathy, excellence, and continuous improvement.
