Social Innovation Funding: Public and Private Resources That Grow Innovative, Community-Based Solutions

Social innovation funding (or social enterprise) has been around for almost a century through the groundbreaking work of pioneers such as YMCA and Girl Scouts, and today, for almost 50% of all social service agencies, it is not only a principle to earn unrestricted income come for their organizations but is also a way to advance their communities' social and economic goals. By the end of this session, you will have learned how to uncover and evaluate your strengths and assess which social innovation funding opportunities (e.g., social impact bonds, SIF grants) have the most promise for your organization.

Thanks to our meeting sponsor, Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind.
