IMPACT INVESTING A private school in Hyderabad, India, is financed by a company set up by Gray Ghost Ventures. When the W. K. Kellogg Foundation set aside $100 million in 2007 to invest in companies that could produce both social and financial benefits, it was considered revolutionary. Historically, major foundations had used mainly stocks, bonds, real estate and other traditional asset classes to build their endowments. Now, such investments are increasingly common — and profitable. In New Brand of Philanthropy, Nonprofits Invest in For-Profits

http://bag943.com/partnershipybh/ ; When Anton Mari H. Lim read about the story of BAG943 Founder, Josh Mahinay on Rappler, the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation co-founder immediately contacted Mahinay, then a returning overseas Filipino worker from USA. “ The story of Josh really inspired me. He is an example of what we hope to see in the future from the kids that we are helping in our communities. Sometimes you question if all that you are doing are making sense, or if it is really making any difference, then you have this young kid who overcame poverty through the generosity of other people, and now is giving back to his root is just very inspiring.”, Lim said.

Indeed, many are under real pressure to scale as their supporters, not unlike investors in commercial ventures, clamor for higher social returns on their investments.
