Commenting on Corry’s appointment to the Council, Impetus Chief Executive Daniela Barone Soares said, “New Philanthropy Capital is at the forefront of activities to understand and measure the impact and effectiveness of civil society organisations. They are challenging charities, social enterprises and donors to consider how they can make an even greater difference for those they support. Impetus has always championed impact measurement, and I am delighted that Impetus will benefit from Dan’s insights.‚Äù
