New Frontiers of Philanthropy: The New Tools and Actors that are Reshaping Global Philanthropy and Social Investing

Synopsis:

A subtle revolution is happening that is transforming how social and environmental objectives are being supported as the world moves more fully into the twenty-first century. The heart of this revolution is a massive proliferation in the tools and actors of philanthropy and investments. Where earlier support of social and environmental objectives was traditionally limited to charitable grants and gifts made available directly or through charitable foundations and corporate giving programs, there is now a bewildering array of new instruments and institutions that have surfaced – loans, loan guarantees, equity-like investments, barter exchanges, social stock exchanges, secondary markets, and many more. Significant changes are under way around the world in how we muster private support for important social and environment goals. These changes are among the most hopeful signs on the world’s philanthropic horizon. Join Dr. Salamon as he discusses his work charting a new and exciting roadmap to this still largely unknown territory.
