Other opportunities

Social Purpose Organization Council

We are working to create a world where social purpose organizations (SPOs) measure impact only as much as they need to help their own learning and never to serve another organization’s data needs. To ensure SPOs have a voice within Common Approach, we are seeking eight leaders from operating charities, nonprofits and social-purpose businesses to form the Social Purpose Organization Council.

Keep an eye on this space. More opportunities are coming soon!
