As individual donors we expect – nay, even demand – ‘impact’. Yet often we aren’t informed of what it takes to get to the point of having impact and then demonstrating it, nor are we willing to allow organisations to invest in the resources and capacities they need in order to maximise their impact.
This thought-provoking piece gives us an insight into how things look from the perspective of a local organisation.
Perhaps its time we balanced our demands for impact with our expectations for how our donations may or may not be spent? We set out to address this issue with what we do with FieldWorks, and are grateful and indeed honoured to have this vote of confidence from someone at the core of our purpose!
