How are the percentages for impact areas calculated?
  • Each organization in our survey had the option to select multiple impact areas. Therefore, the percentages represent the frequency of each impact area’s selection relative to the total number of organizations surveyed.
  • To calculate the percentage for a specific impact area, we divide the number of times that impact area was selected by the total number of organizations in the respective entity type (either funders or nonprofit organizations) and then multiply by 100 to convert it into a percentage.

    Note: When a chart segment is selected to view detailed sub-impact areas, the corresponding data label will show the sub-impact area’s name and the number of organizations that have selected it.
