Philanthropic Investing for Social Innovation

Publication date: 
07/2015
We are experiencing a dramatic change in the practice of philanthropy, including the tremendous growth and interest among foundations in employing a wide range of financial strategies to achieve their philanthropic goals. How are regional associations both taking a leadership role in impact investing and equipping themselves to be responsive to members’ questions and needs? This session will provide a brief overview of impact investing from the national perspective, along with specific examples of how regional associations are approaching this work with their membership. In direct response to Forum member surveys, the session will also touch briefly on pay for success, investing in social entrepreneurship, and mission investing to complement your grantmaking. You will leave the session with resources and ideas to help you continue the learning both on your staff and on behalf of your members.
