My term as @DafneHQ chair ends. A huge thanks to all who helped bring both community #PEXforum and advocacy @PhilanthropyEU to the next level! In the spirit of brevity, allow me to share six reflections.
1. Philanthropy has such a vast, untapped potential: Online giving and #impinv are only getting started, a huge intergenerational wealth transfer is ongoing, and >99% of people are yet to be involved.
2. The inconvenient truth: #Foundations are stagnating while top-end wealth skyrockets. Closing the gap may require tackling unproductive endowments, high overheads, lack of diversity, top-down culture. This current crisis could be an opportunity for renewal.

1/ With financial innovations such as #sustainablefinance and #impactinvesting increasingly viewed as key to the solution of current social and environmental crises, let’s take a look at how we got here, what might be problematic about that and what to do about it. 👇
2/ This is a thread about the empirical part of my book that traces the history of #socinv in the UK. I’ll leave the theoretical argument based on Fligstein & McAdam’s strategic action field theory & pragmatist action theory for another time.

3/ Financial innovations such as #impinv or #socinv mean that firms succeed to make money from financial intermediation where they haven’t done before. To do so, these firms have to make others participate: investees wanting finance, gov to regulate (and often subsidize), etc.

@azd21 @VaticanIHD @OperationNoah @CathClimateMvmt @trocaire @popesprayernet @faithinvest1 @Ecojesuit we don't want a financial system that rules, we want a financial system that serves, says @azd21 recalling Pope Francis' words
@azd21 @VaticanIHD @OperationNoah @CathClimateMvmt @trocaire @popesprayernet @faithinvest1 @Ecojesuit we need to divest from what is damaging and invest in what is not damaging, in what makes a positive social and enviromental #impact, as people of faith we should push for #impactinvestment, says @azd21

(THREAD) @ImpactAlpha challenges #impact investors to scale up their efforts 10X. To which I say: Yes! #Investors can do more, but there’s also #policy and #civics to consider. I want to share some ways at @_BlueHaven we’re addressing the #pandemic.
1/ On the #investment side, we’re checking in with #entrepreneurs and orgs we support, helping them keep their teams intact, thinking through costs, etc. (Check out @LaurenSCochran’s conversation with @annefieldonline: bit.ly/2XSdX8D)
2/ Bridge loans to #impact companies can also help. We’re excited about our investment in the Open Road Alliance Fund (@openroadtweets), which offers these to orgs affected by #COVID19 all over the world. bit.ly/2yavbUt

Alors, je vous présente… our findings about (1) what academic #research already exists about UK charities & #philanthropy and (2) the topics on which UK charities & donors say that they would like more academic #research.

(Thread)
#charity #impact #eval #impinv
2/ Combined, the results are a ‘gap analysis’ which can inform future research. Both studies were funded by @Charity_Futures, re its work establishing an Institute of Charity at Oxford University. But the findings can inform the agenda of any researchers in this terrain.

“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings.” - Churchill

Thesis: how an enterprise shares profits determines the depth of its social mission.

Discuss.

“The inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries” - Churchill

Thesis: the profit motive is the most powerful misery-alleviation mechanism man has yet invented.

Discuss.
Perhaps one of the essential challenges of defining #impinv lies not in defining the impact, but rather in figuring out how to equitably share an enterprise’s profits without introducing regulatory overreach?

Last month a friend asked me "what's the best resource you've read thus far on human decision-making?" 1/
After thinking about it, I decided to recommend her one of the first such resources I ever encountered, seven years ago: Doug Hubbard (@hubbardaie)'s How to Measure Anything. 2/ amazon.com/How-Measure-An…
While I don't agree with every word of it, How to Measure Anything is quite possibly the most important and useful book I've ever read on any topic. Here's why. 3/
