About

The UTS Social Impact Toolbox is empowering organisations to evaluate their social impact in a way that is reliable, accessible and free. It aims to build the capacity of the not-for-profit sector through democratising access to the validated tools, resources and methodologies needed to evaluate and communicate social impact.

The UTS Social Impact Toolbox is empowering organisations to evaluate their social impact in a way that is reliable, accessible and free. By building the capacity of the sector we can develop a common language of evaluation, empower small to medium organisations, and take the anxiety and expense out of mastering the practice of evaluation. It aims to build the capacity of the not-for-profit sector through democratising access to the validated tools, resources and methodologies needed to evaluate and communicate social impact.

In July of 2018, Community Sector Banking partnered with UTS Business School to develop Australia’s first ‘Social Impact Toolbox’ – a free online repository of planning templates and validated measures, indicators and tools, and digital courses to measure the social impact of Australia’s not-for-profit sector. 

This project seeks to democratise access to social impact measurement expertise levelling the playing field for arts and culture organisations delivering programs with a social intent. As a component of the UTS Social Impact Toolbox, all arts and cultural organisations, regardless of their size or resources, will be in a position to present methodologically robust evaluations of their activities to inform improvements in practice and secure funds, which together will increase the benefits that flow to the communities they serve.

We would like to our partners & supporters
