The Allstate Foundation—Toward Standardized Social Outcomes for Companies
April 2019 | Case Studies
The Allstate Foundation has measured the social impact of its community investments for more than 10 years, but without benchmarking capabilities to help validate its work, the foundation, and, importantly, its trustees were not able to understand the full results of its funding. In 2018, the Allstate team updated its metrics and devised an outcomes-based social impact measurement and reporting strategy utilizing the Impact Genome Project.
How much does it cost to provide an individual with short-term hunger relief, to interest a student in STEM, to reduce substance abuse, or to enhance arts appreciation?
Our partner, the Impact Genome Project®, has developed the Price of Impact IndexTM (POI), which provides the average cost of achieving over 100 specific outcomes in areas spanning the arts, economic development, education, the environment, health, science & technology, and more.
