This white paper was produced in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The result of a collaborative effort between Social Finance, members of the Gates Postsecondary Team, and others at the foundation, “Aggregating Capital to Accelerate Impact” explores capital aggregation strategies, ultimately suggesting ways that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other philanthropies can continue to grow their impact.

There has never been a more important time for philanthropy to engage new partners. The challenges we face as a society—and our growing interconnectedness across the globe—mean that no one actor, no one sector, can go it alone.
