- About Insight to Impact -

 

Insight to Impact Consulting was launched to help Northwest Arkansas nonprofits elevate their impact in the community. We help nonprofits build the capacity for evaluative thinking and planning so they can better understand how their services change the lives of the people they serve. We are Arkansas natives with deep roots in Northwest Arkansas. We live and work in NWA, raise our children in NWA, and the success of the NWA community is at the core of our work.

Vision

All NWA nonprofits are equipped with the skills and knowledge to realize their desired impact on the people and places they nurture.

Mission

To assist nonprofits in developing the capacity to align their programming to affect meaningful change in communities and people and develop systems to measure and communicate impact.
