Three organizations have come together to establish the Social Impact Analysts (SIA) Association, a new international membership body designed to support the practice and profession of analysing not-for-profits. The founding partners are New Philanthropy Capital (NPC), a UK-based charity think-tank and consultancy, the Bertelsmann Foundation, based in Germany, and the Netherlands-based Adessium Foundation.
The Association will bring together individuals from around the world who are seeking to understand what makes not-for-profits effective. Members might be based in foundations, businesses, universities or not-for-profits. ‘Whether you’re an evaluation officer at a charity, a grantmaking officer at a foundation or an academic interested in how charities work, we’d like you to get involved in this new network,’ says Sue Wixley of NPC.
