Shifting the Philanthropic Paradigm with Impact Data


Today’s leading philanthropists are looking to their advisors for investment opportunities that align with their values. They are also looking for a greater understanding of the impact of these investments, and whether they are achieving positive outcomes over time. But how can philanthropists gather the information they need to measure the return on their investments, while ultimately building capacity for the organizations they are trying to support. One solution is to shift away from the existing reporting model towards a collaborative approach in which funders and operators align on short and long term metrics and goals. To accomplish  this shift, the sector must empower social enterprise organizations with the means to access and collect relevant, actionable data, and prioritize relationship-building to move the needle.  


Join us for a conversation about how data can transform the existing paradigm in philanthropy. We’ll share examples of how individual investors and foundations are leveraging a single entity fund, in partnership with the Tides Foundation, to cover the cost of data analytics tools for motivated social enterprise organizations. We’ll also share actionable steps for advisors to take back to their clients to help them bring a data-driven approach to their philanthropic activities.
