Sacha Litman

Founder and Managing Director

Sacha Litman manages the activities and strategic vision of Measuring Success, a firm that combines quantitative tools, advanced analytics, and training to help nonprofit organizations make data-driven instead of anecdotal decisions. Through Measuring Success, Sacha created the “Peer Yardstick,” a trademarked performance measurement methodology for non-profits currently in place with dozens of synagogues (in partnership with UJA-Federation, NATA, and CJA-Federation), numerous Jewish Day Schools (in partnership with PEJE), over 50 Federations, the JCC system, Hillels, the Joint Distribution Committee, and others. He is also a winner of the Jewish New Media Innovation Fund for GrapeVine, a data aggregation, predictive analytics, and targeted marketing engine now in five Jewish communities. He holds an MBA with highest distinction from Kellogg (Northwestern), an MPA from Harvard’s Kennedy School and a BS in applied mathematics, summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, from Yale University. Sacha previously worked for McKinsey & Company, Credit Suisse First Boston, and was the Director of Strategy for Hillel. He is a recipient of a Wexner Graduate fellowship. Sacha spent 3 years living in Israel, through the Dorot Fellowship program, where he studied at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem and at Hebrew University.
