“We measure what we value and we celebrate what we want to reproduce.”  

 

This page is intended to equip and inspire.  While all tenants of Nexus are

required to submit year-end and mid-year impact reports as part of their

lease agreement, we have also opened up impact reporting and awards

to co-working members in 2021! 

 

Hear more from Robin about how collaboration with both non-profit and

for-profit organizations on social impact can grow out of a

genuine, healthy and life-giving community

FOR-PROFIT REPORTING  
How are you embedding social impact?

Impact through Product/Supply

Offering products or services that by nature work to solve social issues like environmental remediation, or technology designed to connect people to giving or serving opportunities.  It also includes providing your product or service to those who cannot afford them as a standard part of your business model like a buy one give one to someone (who can not afford the product service) model.  

Bamboo Leaves

Impact through Giving

Giving a portion of revenues to an organization providing resources, training, or solutions to social causes, or donating products or services to nonprofits or organizations working on social issues.

Business Conference

Impact through Employment

Prioritizing hiring a marginalized demographic (women, minorities, homeless, disabled, previously incarcerated, etc.).  Setting goals related to hiring and establishing programs to help marginalized people succeed and grow.

Bridge

Impact through Supply Chain

Executing a formal program for choosing vendors by evaluating diversity, ethics, social equality and carbon footprint. 

Teamwork

Impact through Employee Engagement

Establishing an intentional culture that fosters employee engagement in social impact.  Examples include matching employee giving, offering paid time off for employee volunteering/service, and actively promoting within your staff how the company advances social impact to motivate individuals to find their own passions and areas of impact.

Nonprofit Reporting

Menu Board_edited_edited_edited_edited_e

We believe that earned income enables you to dive into root causes to have long-term impact.  Releasing you from restrictions and requirements for quick “impact” that is often expected from grants and large donors, nonprofits can engage in selling products and services, generating an ongoing revenue streams to fund longer-term solutions. 

Sustainable Revenue

Mirror

 Nonprofits are generally pretty good at tracking outputs, but to achieve genuine impact that is solving social issues instead of providing temporarily relief, you must have an understanding of root causes, goals on what you are trying to change and a process to measure the longer term impact.
