In June, Nonprofit Finance Fund and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco launched a national dialogue about orienting collectively around better outcomes for US communities. A new book, What Matters: Investing in Results to Build Strong, Vibrant Communities, provides expert insights into how shifting toward outcomes will grow programs that work to address our most complex and pressing social problems. Governments can achieve greater impact by funding social services based on collective, accountable measurements of outcomes. Service providers freed from compliance red tape can focus on mission and on what they know works best. Investors and philanthropists can be early leaders by supporting and pioneering outcomes-based funding models.
Partner Anna Pinedo and NPX co-founders Lindsay Beck and Catarina Schwab authored a chapter entitled “The Impact Security: Reimagining the Nonprofit Capital Market”. To access the chapter, see https://goo.gl/NxNisG . For more information about the book, visit: http://investinresults.org/book.
