How PROI Ensures the Biggest Bang for Your Buck

Program Return On Investment™ (PROI) training, tools, and technology work together to track, measure and monetize the impact of life-changing human services. Grantees are empowered to produce the high impact and return-on-investment potential your dollars deserve.

Developed in accordance with the Gates Foundation's Results Hierarchy and vetted over seven years of funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, PROI proved valuable in five ways:


  1. Among 100 agency grantees across America, qualifiers for programs ready and able to prove impact value were determined, along with indicators for return on leadership. 

  2. Over five years' measurement, the agency’s top three performing grantees unveiled impact valued at $160 million, generating an estimated 967% return on the agency’s $15 million investment in them.

  3. The grantees secured $13 million in new funding and reported the private sources saying, “This [ROI] is exactly what we’ve been looking for.”
