- What if those who write reports and those who read reports could be on the same page?
- What if FGOs who wrote reports on funding received could better understand the needs of those who invested in social change?
- What are the reporting requirements of the other side?
- What if social impact investors better understood the circumstances under which For Good Organisations operate?
With these questions in mind we decided to not create a separate page of resources for FGOs, but to do a fruit salad of reporting resources. Please let us know what you think - could this approach add value?

We believe, however, that the greatest obstacle to success is thatpractitioners embark on the collective impact process expecting the wrong kind of solutions.
Cone Generation Z CSR Study How to speak Z from 2017
Gen Z + Companies = Change Let’s start with the basics. As a generation brought up with recycling programs, climate change curriculum and diversity education, it’s no surprise this is a highly empathetic – and socially conscious – group. Ninety-two percent say they care about social and environmental issues, but they don’t exactly like what they see. Nearly nine-in-10 (89%) say they’re worried about the health of our planet.
