We earned the highest rating from the independent charity rating agency, Impact Matters, in recognition of our social impact and were named one of its top nonprofits. “Based on our analysis of your program’s outcomes and costs, we determined your program is highly cost-effective. We are excited to help you highlight your cost-effectiveness to donors this giving season and beyond,” explained Tamsin Chen, Director of Ratings for Impact Matters.
Impact Matters is a new nonprofit rating agency similar to Guidestar and Charity Navigator. Their mission is to guide donors to high-impact nonprofits by producing ratings of impact. They believe strongly in the nonprofit sector as a way to improve people’s lives and have designed their rating system help the nonprofit sector flourish by rewarding impact.
Impact Matters considers social impact as the change in outcomes caused by a social program relative to cost. Some programs are more effective than others at changing outcomes. This data is not available to most donors, preventing them from pinpointing the impact of their own donation. Through data analysis, ImpactMatters calculates the impact of a nonprofit’s program and issues a rating. Donors can use these ratings to make more informed decisions about their giving.

Cutting back on food is a difficult but often necessary choice for families struggling to make ends meet. Especially when you consider the impact of not having enough to eat. Hungry children don’t do well in school. Hungry adults may not be able to hold a job and not having enough to eat affects the ability of seniors to maintain their health and manage an illness.
When you support Community Table on Colorado Gives Day you can help put an end to families having to decide between buying food and paying other expenses and you can help stabilize families and give them the resources they need to be self-reliant.
