em4 services are designed for the challenges faced by both Social Impact Organisations (SIOs) and their Funders.

Whilst SIOs can be challenged by a lack of financial resources and issues of sustainability, Funders seek to have grantee partners that are robust, Mission-driven and provide a good return on their investment through increased social impact.
em4 targets this mutually-connected challenge.
Our unique 4-stage process is designed to get under the skin of an organisation in order to understand its DNA, highlighting the issues and blindspots, and recommending bespoke solutions.

  • Assess: We examine 10 different organisational domains of activity.
  • Deliver: We provide individualised solutions – no one-size-fits-all packages.
  • Evaluate: Our unique monitoring and evaluation system provides evidence to the SIO and its funders that the key challenges discovered in the assessment are being addressed appropriately.
  • Support: Throughout the em4 programme, SIOs are supported by a skilled, local fundraising expert and OD Facilitator via our securitised online platform, CloudRooms.

em4 does not provide one-size-fits-all solutions. Every client is unique.
The em4 process has 4 distinct but interrelated stages.

Our blended learning solutions engage the SIO through a mixture of electronic and online media and face-to-face learning, based on the results of our comprehensive organisational assessment process. This offers SIOs the opportunity for learning and development based on their abilities and capacities.

But we know that organisations’ learning is accelerated when collaborating with their peers. CloudRooms enables this beautifully. It provides a platform for them to engage, collaborate and share ideas through learning by action. SIOs are supported throughout to help implement the learning in their organisations in their respective regions.

organisational assessment

We assess all the critical areas of an SIO’s functions, strategy and process. This is then combined with a self-assessment of its strengths and weaknesses and evaluated against the view of an objective OD expert. The resulting gap analysis provides key recommendations prioritised according to the depth and significance of the challenges faced and the organisation’s budgetary imperatives.
