SIM4CSOs – Social Impact Measurement for Civil Society Organizations

Social impact measurement methods to empower the operation of non-profits within Civil Society by enhancing their effectiveness, transparency and governance.


In Europe, the creation of a large number of non-profits which are involved in the provision of a wide range of social activities is noticed. This trend is not accompanied by systematic practices/tools of transparency, accountability and evaluation. As a result, people tend not to truly trust non-profits, consequently, they cannot prove or measure systematically in a really objective way their social impact. A common methodology and approach should be agreed upon which all non-profits could apply.


  • Empower CSOs by enhancing their effectiveness, transparency and governance through social impact measurement methods
  • Provide CSOs with knowledge, skills and competences to deliver their work and measure their impact
  • Provide an online environment where CSOs can seek guidance and get trained, building in essence a specialized community of professionals in Europe


  • Review of the current situation/ best practices on social impact measurement
  • Development of a tailored training delivered through an interactive online platform to design and implement a social impact measurement system
  • Set up the “measuring up impact self-assessment” and the real-time interaction for CSOs to improve own social impact on the territory



  • Improved knowledge and skills of partner organisations and their networks in social impact measurement, as well as enhancement of the third sector in general
  • Improved cooperation and sustainability of the organisations, as well as the quality of the work they deliver
  • Harmonisation of standards & approaches of social impact measurement across EU
  • 80 organizations registered on the platform, 24 staff members will be trained
