Cultivation for Transformational Giving

Today, many donors consider themselves investor-philanthropists and are interested in maximizing the impact of their grantmaking with philanthropy portfolios that provide quantifiable returns. In this course, learn to identify, cultivate, and steward transformational grant-giving opportunities by individuals, foundations, corporations, and government sources. Topics include for-profit-derived concepts, such as return on investment (ROI) and social return on investment (SROI); the corporate social responsibility (CSR) focus on “shared value” creation; and interpretation of the motivations of transformational grantmaking. Discuss hybrid for-profit/nonprofit funding mechanisms such as PRIs, L3Cs, and social investment bonds, and explore trends in charity rating services for informing and guiding donor investments.
