EmpoweredBy Community Funded Impact Investing and Equity Pledges for Good: The New Landscape of Corporate Philanthropy When it comes to corporate philanthropy, this is more than just an exciting time. It’s an historic one. The movement to reimagine the social purpose of business is accelerating at lightning speed, spinning off a renaissance of entrepreneurship that’s exhilarating to behold. This wave of corporate creativity for good is transforming the relationship that businesses have with their communities and the possibilities for real change. As entrenched issues such as income inequality slog on - much discussed yet under-addressed in Washington, a new generation of businesses is filling the leadership vacuum by building philanthropy directly into their founding missions. For this innovative breed of companies, giving back is not optional or half-hearted; creating sustainable and measurable impact is as core to their definition of success as a high return to their shareholders. San Francisco is a particular hotbed of this socially responsible mindset.

Whitelabel Crowdfunding Software :: Build a Crowdfunding Website About Us | IssueLab IssueLab, a service of the Foundation Center, works to more effectively gather, index, and share the collective intelligence of the social sector. We provide free access to thousands of case studies, evaluations, white papers, and issue briefs addressing some of the world's most pressing social problems. We are also committed to increasing access to this knowledge by making it broadly available through this website, other Foundation Center websites, distributed Knowledge Centers, and content-sharing partnerships with libraries, archives, and online communities. As well, we are working with foundations and nonprofits to adopt a common set of publishing practices, such as the adoption of open licenses and the use of open repositories like this one, to support greater knowledge sharing at the collective level. IssueLab became a project of the Foundation Center in 2012 when its collection was merged with that of PubHub. Recent Thoughts and Activities What Do We Know?
