The Community Impact Report shares quick statistics on the total, approved hours and the cumulative economic impact of that service over time. By placing this workflow and impact metric side-by-side, Administrators can gain critical insights into their members’ performance and its resulting impact.
The blue number at the top of the Community Impact Report provides the total number of approved hours in your Community for a given date range.
Each data point on the blue line represents a weekly or monthly report of the hours approved in the period between that dot's date and the previous dot's date, rounded to the nearest whole number.
For example, looking at the below Community Impact Report, one can conclude that:
- From 11/06/2017 to 11/13/2017, 149 hours were approved in this community.
- From 11/13/2017 to 11/20/2017, 75 hours were approved in this community.
- The total number of hours approved in this Community from September 6 - December 5, 2017 was 1,506 (this is the summation of the 14 data points, or hours approved over each of the 14 weeks in this time period).
The green number at the top of the Community Impact Report depicts the cumulative economic impact of these approved hours rounded to the nearest dollar.
The cumulative economic impact is calculated using the estimated value of volunteer time, which is set by Independent Sector (details on how this figure is calculated are available here). To determine the economic impact of a NobleHour Community, we identify the state in which the opportunity takes place, then multiply the number of hours approved at that opportunity by the state-specific value of volunteer time.
