Getting Started

Understanding 'impacts'

How is impact calculated, and what do the visualisations mean

Our purpose at GiveWheel is to create a better donor experience, and allow you to better understand the impacts of your donations.

As part of a charity's page, we encourage all organisations to add impact details. These are quantified and provide an indicative representation of the impact an individual has made, through all their donations to date.

Example: a user has donated £55 to your organisation in the year, and your impacts are set as 1. £20 = Vaccination(s). 2. £10 = Clean water for an individual. 3. £5 = Meal(s). A user will see their impact as:

  • 2x Vaccinations
  • 1x Clean water for an individual
  • 1x Meal(s)

Note: these impacts are presented to the user as an indication/representative. The charity does not have to use funds for these specific purposes.

We recommend that charities list quantifiable impacts/metrics, such as meals funded, helpline hours, individuals helped, rather than non-specific such as funding research.
