Beyond grant-making: How Foundations can combine their philanthropic work with mission-aligned investing to create outsized impact

  September 21, 2020     14:00 -  14:45  

The session is based on data from an April 2020 report from the Toniic Impact network (T100 focus report: Foundations on the road to 100%). The report surveyed US and European foundations representing $1.7 billion in committed capital and explored the tensions, challenges, and successes in working toward deeper alignment between their capital deployment and their overall mission.

The workshop session will aim to:

  • Shed light on how foundations can deploy the full spectrum of capital towards early stage mission-aligned organizations to achieve change.
  • Discuss the role of early stage unrestricted catalytic capital in contributing towards catalyzing change for vulnerable populations across the world.
  • Demonstrate examples of how building strong organizations and scale strategies can drive impact with philanthropic capital and use DRK’s expertise as an example of how this could be achieved.
  • Discuss and exchange ideas on what key resources (in particular human capital, impact measurement resources, etc.) are required in particular for foundations to expand their capital deployment into mission-aligned investing.
  • Share experiences on specific ideas on how philanthropic capital could be deployed towards promoting inclusive, catalytic change reducing vulnerabilities in a post COVID environment to support systems level change.
