Enter the total donation amount, effectiveness of the organization, sustainability of the results achieved, and cost per beneficiary into the calculator to determine the donation impact.

## Donation Impact Formula

The following formula can be used to calculate the donation impact.

DI = (D * E * S) / C

Variables:

- DI is the donation impact
- D is the total donation amount ($)
- E is the effectiveness of the organization (on a scale of 0 to 1)
- S is the sustainability of the results achieved (on a scale of 0 to 1)
- C is the cost per beneficiary ($)

To calculate the donation impact, multiply the total donation amount by the effectiveness of the organization, and then by the sustainability of the results achieved. Divide the result by the cost per beneficiary. The higher the result, the greater the impact of the donation.

## What is a Donation Impact?

Donation impact refers to the tangible and intangible effects that a donation has on a cause, organization, or individual. It measures how effectively a donation is used to achieve a specific goal, such as improving living conditions, providing education, or saving lives. The impact can be evaluated in terms of the number of people helped, the extent of change brought about, or the sustainability of the results achieved. It is a crucial factor in determining the effectiveness and efficiency of charitable organizations and philanthropic activities.

## How to Calculate Donation Impact?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Donation Impact.

- First, determine the total donation amount ($).
- Next, determine the effectiveness of the organization (on a scale of 0 to 1).
- Next, determine the sustainability of the results achieved (on a scale of 0 to 1).
- Next, determine the cost per beneficiary ($).
- Finally, calculate the Donation Impact using the formula DI = (D * E * S) / C.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total donation amount ($) = 500

effectiveness of the organization (on a scale of 0 to 1) = 0.8

sustainability of the results achieved (on a scale of 0 to 1) = 0.9

cost per beneficiary ($) = 10
