How do we calculate the impact ratios for the value of services and aid delivered?
VALUE OF SERVICES
We capture the value of the equipment and services provided to the nonprofit community via ALAN request, along with the number of hours volunteered to coordinate that work. We then multiply those hours by the standard volunteer rate (using the 2015 value of $23.56) and add it to the value of the equipment and services. Finally, we divide that sum by the total cost of all ALAN activities.
VALUE OF SERVICES = VALUE DELIVERED TO NONPROFITS /TOTAL EXPENSES
We capture the value of the supplies being transported, stored, or sorted, as provided by the nonprofit shippers, then divide that by the total cost of all ALAN activities.
AID DELIVERED = VALUE OF ITEMS SHIPPED /TOTAL EXPENSES
