We can describe in words the impact L'Arche makes in Calgary but it’s another thing to quantify it. Recently we have been working with Simpact Strategy Group to develop a Social Return on Investment (SROI) analysis for L'Arche Calgary. What is that you ask? It’s a way of looking at what our agency does in order to describe the dollar value that L'Arche Calgary returns to the community.
You may have wondered: “If I donate a dollar, what economic benefit does it make in Calgary?” Or in other words, what is the social return on investment of a donation to L'Arche?
The answer to that question is that for every dollar invested into L’Arche, a minimum of $3 of social and economic value is created and returned to Calgary. For a copy of the study click HERE.
Also, check out our workshop from our Day Program. We make many kinds of handcrafted gifts and goodies, made with love by our core members and assistants. Please support our program by buying some gifts for that special person or for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Easter, Christmas or just any day!
