Investing in NGOs to Increase Impact
We undertook a joint effort with Zurich Insurance Group to develop a framework and highlight key considerations around the question of whether using private investor capital could increase NGO impact. The goal of this work was to facilitate more frequent and meaningful engagement between NGOs and investors. Under certain conditions, private investor capital has the potential to help NGOs do more with available resources while simultaneously providing investors with both social impact and a financial return. The framework illuminates those opportunities, prerequisites and the conditions under which they can be mutually beneficial.
