The Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF) partnered with the University of California, the Urban Institute, Harvard University and other worthy organizations to create this tool, the first of its kind to assign an economic outcome value to the impactful works of human services organizations.
The calculator includes instructions for entering metrics for the populations served into the tool. The calculator takes it from there and computes the economic impact on society for the good works achieved.
After you complete your calculation, you can download your work into Excel.
This is truly an incredible way to highlight the ripples of economic impact across society for human and community services where there is not a clear numeric connection between the investment and the result.
