ACSEP Training Programme: Social Impact Measurement
In this training series, ACSEP discusses and demonstrates approaches for social impact measurement.
During each session, ACSEP introduces an approach that can be used for programme planning, monitoring and evaluating social impact. The training sessions are accessible to practitioners with limited experience in social impact assessment, but are also interesting for experienced practitioners that want to learn new approaches in assessing their impact. The sessions are valuable for practitioners from a wide variety of social service organisations, ranging from social entrepreneurs and impact investors to foundations, charities and government agencies. Each session teaches participants skills that can be put into practice directly.
Session 1: The Logical Framework
Session 2: Theories of Change
Session 3: Key Impact Indicators
Session 4: Control Groups and Counterfactual Thinking
Measuring & Improving the Impact of Social Organisations
This two-day programme focus on the design, implementation, and evaluation of strategies for the delivery of social goods and services through non- and for- profit organisations (impact investees). It considers issues from the perspective of the organisations themselves, government contractors, and philanthropists who are either donors or investors.
The sessions are taught through a mixture of lectures, discussions and in-class exercises to allow participants to design and evaluate strategies. Through case study simulations, participants will be challenged to make the major decisions taken by managers, philanthropists, and investors.

Philanthropic Psychology: The Psychological Science of Giving
This workshop introduces the latest findings in philanthropic psychology by using new thinking and evidence to inspire innovative practices. It explains how moral identity, family and friends networks, donor identity and communal relationship formation influences giving. It examines field experiments where ideas created fundraising uplift of 10%-30% with no additional cost, and reviews donors surveys where giving has been shown to shape one’s sense of who they are and how they relate to a non-profit.
Advanced philanthropic psychology concepts are covered in these sessions, and hands-on exercises are provided to help understand and apply these concepts in fundraising communications with donors. Participants are encouraged to bring copies of their donor communications to discuss how academic research might be applied to modify fundraising communications.
Fundraising staff, board members and volunteers who have direct interaction with donors, in particular those dealing with principal and major gifts. This session is also useful for staff in development offices who are overseeing communication with donors and related stakeholders.
