Join a lively, interactive session for senior foundation staff led by Nonprofit Finance Fund on leveraging investments for greater impact.

Social investors are exploring new social enterprise and business models that can leverage the power of the for-profit marketplace for social good.

In this program, participants will think about innovative ways to increase funding to support programs and organizations that contribute to healthy, vibrant communities. The half-day session will bring together senior-level staff who influence the grantmaking strategies and priorities of their foundations to discuss ways to think beyond the grant and scale impact. In an interactive exchange, participants will:

  • Learn why funders are taking a second look at tools such as mission-related and program-related investments;
  • Discuss the pros and cons of new social enterprise and business models that can leverage the power of the for-profit marketplace for social good; and
  • Learn how to navigate the field of impact investing, including social impact bonds.


Southern California Grantmakers, in partnership with Northern California Grantmakers and San Diego Grantmakers is pleased to offer a new statewide financial analysis series with Nonprofit Finance Fund designed to sharpen the financial assessment tools of grantmakers at all professional levels.
