Venture Philanthropy is adopted by Investors for Impact as the approach - by being highly-engaged and committed in the long term, applying the following three core practices to support the social purpose organisations:
Choosing the most suitable financial instrument(s) to support an SPO. These instruments include grant, debt/loan, equity, and hybrid financial instruments.
Providing support services to a social purpose organisation in order to maximise its social impact, increase its financial sustainability or strengthen its organisational resilience.
Measuring and monitoring the change created by an organisation’s activities, and using this information/data to refine activities in order to increase positive outcomes and reduce potential negative ones.
