This project seeks to examine methods in which nonprofit organizations (NPOs) are able to further their impact, specifically in regard to the socioeconomic development of their communities. This is done through examining consequences of socioeconomic disparities such as health disparities and increased crime rates, reviewing a number of commonly used NPO strategies, and emphasizing the importance of performance measurement tactics. All information was gathered through the combination of a complete literature review and a case study on a local nonprofit organization: MadisonHome Inc. It is important for nonprofit organizations to implement a variety of measurement tactics in order to determine which of their policies are most effective for goal attainment. This will ultimately serve to further their overall community impact.
