What are Nonprofit Outcome Metrics? Outcome metrics are powerful, essential tools for demonstrating accountability and transparency. Nonprofit Outcome Metrics measure financial or non-financial criteria that reflect an organization’s, program’s, or initiative’s efficacy. They’re derived by carefully defining outcome indicators, data-collection methods, analytical techniques, and presentation vehicles that collectively show a rich picture of organizational performance.

These outcome metrics may go by many names and fit in countless categories. Many nonprofits obtain their best results by measuring across multiple dimensions for blended scorecards that encompass activities, capacities, financial results, and other metrics. Ultimately, well-defined outcomes measures help organizations to continuously adapt and improve.
