Now Is the Time for Foundations to Invest for Mission and Impact
To conclude the Mission Possible series, a collaboration between Mission Investors Exchange and the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR), Matt Onek issues a call for action for philanthropy to fully embrace impact investing as an essential tool to drive meaningful social and environmental change. You don’t have to be one of the nation’s largest foundations or committed to 100 percent for mission to have a major impact. For those who haven’t engaged in impact investing, now is the time to get started. For those already actively investing, now is the time to get even more creative, take greater risks, and ultimately commit more funding to address the great social and environmental challenges of our time.
