Penn’s High Impact Philanthropy Academy is designed for individual donors, professional grantmakers, and other philanthropic leaders seeking greater impact. Join our Spring 2023 cohort, part-time weekdays March 6 – 17.
The Choosing Change toolkit can help donors and funders at all levels identify proposals and teams that have potential to create significant positive impact in the world.
High impact philanthropy is the practice of using philanthropic funds for social impact. Practicing high impact philanthropy starts with a social impact goal, then uses the best available evidence, considerations of cost and impact, and a commitment to ongoing learning to achieve that goal. It’s not about how much you give, but how well you give to drive positive, social change.
[The High Impact Giving Guide] is the single most useful guide to smart giving that I’ve come across since I began writing about philanthropy nearly two years ago.
