Our global research has appeared in numerous journals and media outlets, including Stanford Social Innovation Review, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, and The Chronicle of Philanthropy.
It's time to break the vexing pattern of underfunding and underinvesting that prevents countless nonprofits from maximising their impact. "Pay what it takes" philanthropy looks to remedy the situation by providing a flexible approach to funding, grounded in real costs.
Back to the Frontier: Investing that Puts Impact First
Impact investing has boomed over the past decade, driven by the ethos that financial performance goes hand-in-hand with social and environmental impact. But more wealth holders now see the value of putting impact before investment, and prioritising people and planet.
What Are Intended Impact and Theory of Change and How Can Nonprofits Use Them?
Strategy is all about getting critical resource decisions right. But developing a clear, effective strategy can be a long process full of difficult tradeoffs. One way to smooth the path is to clarify your nonprofit’s intended impact and theory of change.
