Impact

Indiana United Ways is committed to creating impact in our communities that advances the financial well-being, health, and education of all Hoosiers. In partnership with the Polis Center at IUPUI, our Indiana Impact data and Community Report Card Overview provide an insight into how your community is doing in the areas of income, health, and education. Our Statewide Impact snapshot provides an overview of what the United Way network in Indiana is doing to support the well-being of our communities and address community needs.

Global Results Framework

IUW empowers member organizations to create positive, lasting impact within their communities in three key focus areas – health, education, and financial stability – in order to improve quality of life for Hoosier families across the state. In order to measure success, United Way developed a practical framework to report results across United Way communities – the Global Results Framework.

The Global Results Framework, or GRF, uses data about resources mobilized, services and supports provided, systems improved through policy change, and individual outcomes in order to present a holistic view of United Ways’ efforts and impacts. The GRF works within the key focus areas of health, education, and financial stability to measure progress toward four long-term goals in the areas of childhood success, youth success, economic mobility, and access to health. Those goals are: (1) Children enter school prepared and are successful in primary school; (2) Youth gain the knowledge, skills, and credentials to obtain family-sustaining employment; (3) Individuals and families improve their socioeconomic status; and (4) Individuals and families have access to high-quality healthcare and may improve their health.

With these four goals, Indiana United Ways strives to build communities in which every individual has the resources and opportunities they need in order to thrive.
