Improving Impact (0-3 staff) category
The Improving Impact category is split into three different sizes of organisation.
This award is for organisations that can demonstrate how the board has contributed towards the increase of the charity’s impact in relation to its cause, mission and values. We are looking for examples of increasing social impact, not just fundraising or increasing income.
What the judges are looking for
The judges will be looking at how impact is described and measured, and how this has changed, as a result of the role that the board played; and also the longer-term increase in impact for the charity, its beneficiaries and mission, that the board helped achieve.
The entry must focus on the work of the main board, but if any sub-committees or other governance groups outside the main board made a contribution, you are welcome to tell us about that in your response.
