Resilience and Philanthropy

A just published article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review offers a remedy in somewhat different language to fundamental problems that have beleaguered the philanthropic world for decades, including the fragmentation and misalignment of philanthropic interventions with urgent societal needs and the resulting poor results from most investments.

A just published article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review offers a remedy in somewhat different language to fundamental problems that have beleaguered the philanthropic world for decades—all of which can be described as challenges to integral resilience. They are:

  • Most giving remains relatively small and fragmented, and not aligned with what’s required for large-scale and enduring impact.
  • Investment-ready systems change efforts are rare; few social change leaders have built robust strategies, capabilities and partnerships to drive systems change, although many have the vision and ability to do so.
  • There aren’t enough efficient mechanisms for philanthropists to find and support high-potential investments, and to connect and collaborate with one another in a deep and meaningful way, especially across borders.
  • The CHME portal is focused precisely on the choke points addressed by the author in her new venture, Co-Impact: how collaborative philanthropy can scale and multiply the benefits in community health and wellness on a global level.
