PRODUCING MEANINGFUL RESULTS AND ACHIEVING SOCIAL ROI
CNM’s heartbeat since the beginning has been to equip nonprofits with the knowledge and skills needed to be the best they can be. As community needs continue to grow, we have come to believe that all stakeholders, not just nonprofits, need to be involved if issues are to be addressed in a meaningful way. We broadened our mission to strengthen communities by partnering with corporations, foundations, government, as well as nonprofits, to focus on results.
To achieve social ROI, CNM provides strategic data expertise and leading-edge technology to nonprofits with the support of foundations and corporations. We also offer education and consulting services that give actionable, practical, and impactful guidance. At CNM, we are dedicated to smart management, measurable outcomes, and thriving communities.
Our customized approach, strategic management and data expertise, and leading-edge technology give the right mix of knowledge and insight to advance nonprofit missions and community impact. We help communities by helping nonprofits be their best – engaging them on every level, giving them the tools they need to succeed – and partnering with them and with businesses, foundations, and government entities in a way that produces meaningful results.
CNM COMMUNITY RESULTS
FORTRESS YOUTH DEVELOPMENT CENTER
“Early findings in our data have led us to be optimistic that children who go through our preschool program are more likely to have on-level 3rd grade reading metrics, which is a major indicator for lifelong success. Adding this data to the dashboard through CNM-pact will allow us to track these students as they progress through our program to indicate not only short-term outcomes, but to validate our hypothesis about long-term outcome.”

CNM IN THE NEWS
“Nonprofits want to, and are capable of, achieving greater community impact. But that requires funders to be more investment-oriented by directing their contributions to expertise and tools that will help nonprofits collect the right data and operate efficiently and effectively to achieve meaningful results.”
Opinion: Charitable giving: Are you throwing your money away?
The Dallas Morning News, Feb. 10, 2020
“We consulted with one nonprofit that claimed its program was effective at reducing teen pregnancy. But once we implemented a plan for data collection and analysis, we found that while the teen pregnancy rate was lower overall, it was actually higher among Hispanic program participants. So, the funding alone had a mixed and limited return, and the data drove the nonprofit to a more effective solution.”
