The true value of your investment in New Profit is much greater than the size of your donation.
New Profit's approach to philanthropy reinforces your charitable dollars with valuable portfolio management and pro-bono services, without transferring the cost to you. An individual, family, or even family foundation seeking to have an impact on critical social problems through philanthropy would be hard-pressed to assemble the capacity and expertise needed to identify, support, and evaluate leading social entrepreneurs without adding substantial cost to their operations and detracting from the dollars that ultimately reach organization.
Furthermore, the charitable dollars you direct to New Profit are pooled with the investments of all the individuals and families in our investor community. As a fund, we are able to make larger investments in high-performing nonprofit organizations. In turn, the social entrepreneurs guiding these organizations, when equipped with sizeable, unrestricted grants, are freer to be more ambitious in their thinking and bolder in their programming.
The end result: greater impact on critical social problems.
