    A Better Way to Give: Rethinking Resource Allocation in the Nonprofit Sector with an Impact-First Approach by Widoff, Ethan Beck

    This research aims to improve practices in the nonprofit sector by countering the current giving method, weakened by anti-overhead biases in popular evaluation models, with a new impact-first approach. Focused on the outputs nonprofits produce, this approach first incorporates a new evaluation model uniquely geared to illustrate the ability each given nonprofit has to create impact. Second, this alternative model will open the door to a new impact performance variable, measuring the efficiency at which nonprofits produce impact given their capability to do so.  As a result, this impact-first approach can more accurately identify nonprofits most efficient at producing impact encouraging stronger resource allocation to these organizations – a better way to give.
