  • The Social Finance Institute

Meg Massey is the Associate Director of Policy & Communications, supporting the growth of the new Social Finance Institute.

Meg’s interest in cross-sector funding strategies for social good began during her tenure as a policy analyst at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), where she helped federal agencies adopt outcomes-based funding models. She went on to advance impact-first principles through strategic communications roles at the Urban Institute, Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG), and Upaya Social Ventures.

Meg is the co-author of the award-winning book Letting Go: How Philanthropists and Impact Investors Can Do More Good By Giving Up Control. A journalist by training, her writing has appeared in a number of publications over the years, including Impact Alpha and the Chronicle of Philanthropy. She also co-founded the digital magazine Proximate.

Meg earned her BA magna cum laude from Mount Holyoke College and her MA in American government from Georgetown University. She lives in Washington, D.C.

Social Finance is a pioneer in the movement to align outcomes, evidence, and impact. I'm thrilled to help the new Institute become a leader in advancing the cause of social impact for people and communities everywhere.
