Measuring impact across a broad portfolio is complex. We measure our foundation's impact in many ways, one of which is through the people and the number of lives our portfolio affects; another is through how these organizations grow over the course of our three-year engagement. We also look at the ability of our portfolio to change the systems that cause or contribute to the societal problems on which they are focused.
