By taking a venture philanthropy approach to our work, we build stronger NGOs by providing them with both financial and non-financial support in order to increase their societal impact. This involves a mixture of the following:

High Engagement

Hands-on relationships between the social enterprise or nonprofit management and the venture philanthropists.

Organizational Capacity-Building

Building the operational capacity of the portfolio organizations, by funding core operating costs rather than individual projects.

Multi-year Support

Supporting a limited number of organizations for 3-5 years, then exiting when organizations supported are financially or operationally sustainable.

Non-financial Support

Providing value-added services such as strategic planning to strengthen management.

Involvement of Networks

Providing access to networks so as to enable the investees to avail of various and often complementing skill-sets and resources.

Tailored Financing

Using a range of financing mechanisms tailored to needs of organization supported.

Impact Measurement

Placing emphasis on good business planning, measurable outcomes, achievement of milestones and financial accountability and transparency.
