Better Results Programme

Is a cross-sector activity where we apply market research methodologies and expertise to the non-profit sector’s work.

Our Better results Programme is an innovative cross-sector activity where we explore ways to apply market research methodologies and expertise to the non-profit sector’s work to help them improve their performance through better measurement.

NGOs are facing increasing pressure from donors to better measure results and show the effectiveness and the real impact of their work. More effective ways of measuring results is necessary to help non-profit organisations and funding entities to better plan their projects, improve progress, increase impact and enhance learning.

The ESOMAR Foundation functions as a facilitator. We identify organisations and match their needs with the appropriate resources and competencies within our industry. Our goal is to help all non-profit organisations as well as other stakeholders to use the market research industry’s expertise to make their work more effective.

We work with a Panel of Experts who assess, select and evaluate each project. ESOMAR Foundation coordinates and administers projects and oversees the implementation. Types of projects can differ widely depending on the issue and the type of applicant organisation.

How can you support us?

We are open to receive applications at all times. Organisations are asked to submit a concept note that will be reviewed by our team and our panel of experts.
If you are an NGO who is interested in applying or a market researcher who would like to get involved, please contact us at info@esomarfoundation.org

Partners & Sponsors

For some of our Better Results initiatives we work with partners and sponsors. Partners are usually companies with an interest in providing their expertise and support. Partners support our activities financially, get involved in projects, participate as a trainer to help NGOs gain skills and expertise. 

We are always on the lookout for partners and sponsors. If you are an organization looking to understand more on how you can support us, please find more information here or contact: info@esomarfoundation.org
