Impact Capacity Assessment Tool (iCAT)
The iCAT is an organizational assessment, planning, and evaluation tool that helps consultants, funders, parent organizations, associations of nonprofits and other intermediaries to better target their efforts in supporting and strengthening the nonprofits they work with. It assesses six key organizational capacities: Leading, Learning, Resource Generating, Planning, Managing, and Overseeing. Each of these six capacities also have a number of subcapacities. The iCAT report includes a score for each capacity and subcapacity on a 100-point scale, a series of detailed and prioritized recommendations, and a capacity building plan. The report assists the intermediary organization and the nonprofit in identifying areas of strength and areas needing improvement so that the nonprofit can become a more high-performing organization that is better able to effectively deliver on its mission.
