ImpactMapper (IM) software is an all-in-one tool for donors, nonprofits, corporates, and impact investors to track their social impact and share the stories that matter most. We have developed a platform with easy to use features to aggregate, analyze and visualize quantitative and qualitative data in ways that help organizations better understand their impact and track trends over time to inform their strategic plans, portfolios and decisions.

ImpactMapper helps our users to:

  • gain insights from the data they already have--both qualitative and quantitative-- including grantee reports, Most Significant Change stories, interviews, focus groups, surveys, excel data, etc.;

  • create and access compelling data visualizations to understand what's working and what’s not;

  • conduct analysis of their grantmaking/investments/project performance over time;

  • improve the efficiency of long-term data collection and align data to expected outcomes through the survey features;

  • systematize stories of impact and quotes in meaningful ways for communication purposes.

Our platform came out of our need to bring diverse types of data to life, to easily share information between donors and organizations. Social change can be shared in creative and exciting ways - in stories, not just numbers.

With ImpactMapper, you can pull out insights from diverse forms of data - some of which you’d never have thought to use before, like text messages or emails from your partners! 

You can upload and analyze it all on our platform, and spend your time and money more effectively on doing the work that matters.
