Feature: European Venture Philanthropy and Social Investment 2011/2012: The EVPA Survey | EVPA

Feature: European Venture Philanthropy and Social Investment 2011/2012: The EVPA Survey | EVPA | SVPWR | Scoop.it

On March 1, EVPA released its second annual survey of European venture philanthropy (VP) and social investment (SI). It reveals that the European VP/SI sector continues to evolve rapidly and is becoming more sophisticated in the use of instruments to generate greater societal impact. In the second survey, the average annual financial spend per VP/SI organisation was €5.2m – a 27% increase on the previous year (€4.1m).

The objective of the survey is to provide independent data and to raise awareness about the impact of VP/SI originating in Europe. The report provides detailed analysis of the financial and non-financial investments made, and the investment strategy and investment practices of Europe-based venture philanthropy and social investment organisations (VPOs). The following are some of the trends detected.

Can You Handle the Truth? | Venture Philanthropy Partners

Can You Handle the Truth? | Venture Philanthropy Partners | SVPWR | Scoop.it

There are many reasons why developing high-performance organizations and leaders is not a priority within the social and public sectors. Sure, there’s little money coming from funders to support it. Yes, there’s a shortage of know-how—best practices, products, consultants—to help get organizations started on the right path. But these may not be the biggest gating factors.

Too many of us—especially us funders—need a boost of courage to face the facts. Are we really willing to hold the mirror up? Or are we afraid we’ll learn that what we’re doing or funding isn’t as good as we’ve led people, or even ourselves, to believe? Might the data tell us things we don’t want to hear because it doesn’t support or runs counter to our aspirations?

Good post on how to use content to communicate the impact of donors on your nonprofit. It is so important to show how their actions contribute to solutions. 


I especially like the solid examples of how a nonprofit can emphasize donor impact.
