French foundations and their use of social impact measurement

J.Jaume, 29 November 2015

[AMO publication] Social impact measurement is a subject that is more and more heard of, it is an instrument that is being used by many organizations – in the Anglo-Saxon world especially – to justify the relevance of their social activities and to legitimize their funding. French foundations, that are quite discrete and unknown to the general public, are also beginning to tackle the subject. They discuss, experiment, exchange on the subject and have very different and unique approaches.

What are these approaches? How do foundations make this subject their own? Why and for what purpose do they decide to measure their social impact? Who asks them to do so? This research will try to provide an answer to these questions.

Juliette Jaume was part of the Alternative Management third year specialization program at HEC Paris.
