This report explores the way trusts and foundations are using ‘total impact’ strategies for achieving their charitable missions. This means considering the social impact of all their activities and planning accordingly. Many foundations are finding they can serve the needs of their beneficiaries by looking at the social impact of:
- investment activity
- grant programmes
- supply chains
This spreadsheet tool is primarily for anyone involved in creating an impact strategy for a charitable foundation. It aims to help decide the best use of money to make both financial returns and social impact.
