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:

  1. Tailored Financing
  2. Non-Financial Support
  3. Impact Measurement & Management
  1. Tailored Financing

Choosing the most suitable financial instrument(s) to support an SPO. These instruments include grant, debt/loan, equity, and hybrid financial instruments.

  1. Non-Financial Support

Providing support services to a social purpose organisation in order to maximise its social impact, increase its financial sustainability or strengthen its organisational resilience.

  1. Impact Measurement & Management

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.
