Philanthropy Now Podcast: Multiplying Grantmaker Power with Impact Investing

On Silicon Valley Community Foundation's "Philanthropy Now" podcast, Jackie Khor, Vice President, Social Investments at Social Finance, discusses how impact investing, including donor-advised funds, can complement traditional philanthropic grantmaking to drive social good. Jackie explains the spectrum of impact investing and the variety of ways in which impact-first investors have been supporting an equitable recovery in the Bay Area. Other panelists include James Cutler, Senior Investment Officer, Silicon Valley Community Foundation and Louie Nguyen, Chief Investment Officer, Mission Driven Finance.

“There’s a huge and increasing gap in economic opportunity. By leading with impact and therefore being able to take greater “financial risk” in return for the impact you’re trying to seek, impact-first investors can play a critical role in filling important capital gaps, particularly in low-income, underinvested communities.”
