CAMPAIGN: The Champions for Social Good Podcast Series

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

In this episode of the Champions for Social Good Podcast, Jamie Serino speaks with Michelle DiSabato, Impact Advisor for the Corporate and Foundation Solutions division of Blackbaud. Michelle explains how her passion for impact and measurement led her to a career centered on helping foundations and corporations more clearly understand the impact that their programs are having on the people and communities that they're serving. Michelle discusses the evolution of impact measurement in the social good sector and explains that the vast majority of corporations and foundations, almost 75% of them, still struggle to get a handle on outcomes, measurement, and impact. Michelle provides suggestions for grantmaking organizations on how to get started on the journey toward measuring outcomes and impact and clarifies the important difference between measuring outputs versus outcomes. Michelle and Jamie then discuss the benefits of being outcomes driven, such as increased collaboration, cross-sector partnerships, and collective impact. Lastly, Michelle discusses the role of outcomes measurement in the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how an increasing number of companies are aligning corporate volunteer initiatives to address specific SDGs.

The Champions for Social Good podcast brings together thought leaders and practitioners in the social good movement to share learnings, educate and inspire change across the sector, and is hosted by Jamie Serino, Director of Marketing, MicroEdge + Blackbaud.
