Foundations as catalytic investors in social enterprises
This part II of our series will focus on the role foundations can play in supporting social enterprises to strengthen their social and environmental impact and access funding.
Impact investing can create additional sources of revenue as well as opportunities to expand and scale impact for non-profits. Recent years have seen the non-profit sector (including NGOs, foundations and philanthropists) start to engage with the financial industry to develop new investment vehicles with an increase in the creation of blended financing models, the development of social impact bonds, and SDG-aligned bonds. Non-profits have a key role to play in impact investing through the development of new models of collaboration with financial institutions, support in formulation of impact strategies, evaluation of impact and providing technical assistance, and/or driving alignment with endowment or pension fund on impact considerations.
Join us to learn how Swiss NGOs, foundations, and philanthropists can accelerate the impact investment movement.
