What does it take to measure and fund positive social change?

In partnership with Nonprofit Finance Fund, we’re pleased to launch our new book, What Matters: Investing in Results to Build Strong, Vibrant Communities, and the beginning of a dialogue on the evolution of the outcomes universe.

At this launch event, we explored how service providers, government, philanthropy, and others are working together to address entrenched social issues in our communities and focus on long-term solutions. In addition to explaining key terms and concepts around outcomes, speakers discussed how funding systems can be changed to orient all stakeholders around outcomes, what outcomes-based funding models look like, and what is involved in developing them.
