Helping nonprofits in Metro Denver measure and maximize impact. Through coaching and cohort-based learning opportunities, we strengthen nonprofit programs and increase evidence of what works.
72% of nonprofits lack the internal knowledge, skills, or tools to engage in meaningful evaluation of their work1 and lack the funds to support this work.
This is why we created Impact United. We believe strengthening capacity supports nonprofits in fulfilling their missions to better serve the community.2
