How we assess our impact

RSF Social Finance has an innovative approach to impact assessment. Our method has been developed with the knowledge that as a financial services organization, RSF acts as an intermediary. The privilege of serving in this role is to have insight into the experiences of those who invest and give (money in) as well as into those who receive the funding (money out). Our impact is reciprocal and multidimensional, so our challenge in assessing it requires innovation and an understanding of how we serve in the stewardship and circulation of finances. We continually gather data on how our investors, donors, borrowers, staff and board have been affected through their work with us.
