Ian Galloway, Sr. Research Associate and Oregon Community Development Manager, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco
Join us for a conversation on Pay for Success (also known as social impact bonds), a new nonprofit funding instrument based on the not-so-new notion that prevention pays -- that is, upfront investments in human capital can bear long-term social and financial returns. This kind of innovation, part of a movement toward outcomes-based funding has the potential to improve the social sector’s effectiveness by encouraging innovation, validating progress, and, when appropriate, attracting private capital to social causes. Pay for Success can also help community development organizations identify the hidden economic value that accrues to the public sector when difficult social challenges are solved. The program will explore this new tool and provide guidance to nonprofits interested in accessing this new source of capital.
