Community Impact Planner

Plan your project

Planning your project to achieve great outcomes

Being clear on what you are trying to achieve will help you figure out how best to do this. Using a theory of change, logic model and an evaluation plan can help you build a successful project.

Community Impact Planner

The Community Impact Planner contains three tools that can help you plan your project and present it to others. The planner will help you understand your vision, plan your impact and report on the outcomes of your project. You can complete all three tools, or just select and export the one you need.


The planner has been designed for use on a desktop device for ease of interactivity with the tools, and does not display optimally on mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. It is advisable to switch to a desktop device when accessing the planner. If you are using the tools on a tablet, please expand your window to full screen at minimum 1024px.
