Our partners are relentlessly focused on measuring impact
We think that ‘impact’ means a demonstrable and measurable change that occurs which positively affects and transforms the lives of vulnerable communities. Put simply, Impact = measurable, positive change.
We believe that the truest reflection of an organisation’s commitment to serving communities with the best solutions is founded upon their commitment to measuring their impact on the ground.
As we are new to New Zealand, we are committed to learning over the next 12 months about potential New Zealand-specific partnerships that we can fund to enable both global and local impact outcomes.
For us, the best partnerships are based on shared vision, values, trust, understanding and beliefs around transparency and teamwork.
Our Core Impact Values
Learning and Evidence
We never claim to know it all, and our impact partners don’t either. Together, we are committed to ongoing learning and development through intentionally collecting evidence that demonstrates long-lasting impact.
We believe the communities we serve are the solutions to the issues they face. Our role is to come alongside them, and back their dreams for their own communities. Education and the transfer of skills are therefore at the core of every program we fund.
A skilled, dedicated and passionate team is the greatest determinant of an organisation’s success. Our impact partners both foster and retain incredible people who live and breathe what they say.
We never want to be an imposition to the important work our impact partners do everyday. Therefore our impact partners have the internal structure, systems, and capacity to meet our funding requirements.
Complete transparency, always and every step of the way. For us to make the impact together, transparency and trust are fundamental.
