What questions are asked in a Social Impact Report?

Your Social Impact Report is an executive summary of your program's goals, activities, beneficiaries, outcomes, and budget.

In creating your Social Impact Report, you'll provide high-level descriptions of your program's goals, activities, beneficiaries, outcomes, and budget. The report questions will change based on how you respond to certain questions. However, all Social Impact Reports will include the following sections.

You can download this cheat sheet if you'd like to work on your report offline before entering your responses in the oneline platform.
