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 donor gives £55 to an organisation in the year. The organisation’s 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 donor as an indication. The charity does not have to use funds for these specific purposes.

However, through presenting a quantified and visual representation of your impact, a donor can be closer than ever to the cause, and track the real impacts that their charity makes, throughout their entire donation history.
