Are you actively committed to society with your project? And you want to show that your engagement has a proven impact? - Then have your project analyzed by PHINEO and show with the Seal of Impact that you make a difference!
In order for you to have your project analyzed by us, it must match our current call for proposals. More information on this, you can find on the page of our calls for proposals.
There are two seals of approval in Germany - one of them is the "Seal of Impact". It is free of charge. You can use the Seal of Impact in variousways in your communication - on the website, in donation letters and on posters. With this seal you show potential supporters: You have what it takes to make a big impact and you handle entrusted funds with care!
Non-profit organizations receive constructive feedback throughout the whole analysis process. In addition to an independent assessment of their strengths and weaknesses, they receive advice on how they can achieve more in their everyday work with simple means.
In the event of being awarded, non-profit organizations can use the Seal of Impact in a number of ways in their communications.
In addition, companies and foundations like to draw on our pool of recommended projects when they are looking for new funding projects.
Yes, we know of many examples where the awarded Seal of Impact has had a positive effect on receiving donations. We know of individual donations in the five to six-figure range.
Alone through the nationwide fundraising campaign DEUTSCHLAND RUNDET AUF, which exclusively supports projects awarded by PHINEO, 10 million euros in donations have been raised so far. A considerable part of the 100 million euro funding budget of the SKala initiative also goes to Seal of Impact projects.
We also know of non-monetary donations in the form of consultancy services, workshops and training courses that organizations have received as a result of the Seal of Impact.
A survey among the Seal of Impact organizations in the summer of 2018 yielded the following results (n=114)
In our analysis feedback, we explain what we particularly like about the organization and in which areas there is potential for optimisation. We give suggestions…
Participating organizations receive this consulting service free of charge - regardless of whether they are ultimately awarded our Seal of Impact.
And in any case, it applies: There is no musts, only cans! It is entirely up to you which of our ideas you finally want to implement. Of course we treat all data strictly confidential!
The Seal of Impact is exclusively for non-profit organizations and projects.
A non-profit organization receives the Seal of Impact after successfully passing the four-stage analysis process. The analysis process is linked to a thematic call for proposals, which we conduct approximately once a year.
Participation in the call for proposals and the analysis are free of charge.
There are no analyses without a call for proposals.
The Seal of Impact has no period of validity. However, each seal bears a date, and thus provides information about the timeliness of the analysis.
