What Is High Impact Philanthropy?

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.
