Silicon Valley Community Foundation Philanthropy Now podcast

From Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF):

In this episode, SVCF Senior Investments Officer James Cutler is joined by Mission Driven Finance Chief Investment Officer Louie Nguyen and Social Finance Vice President of Social Investment Jackie Khor. Louie and Jackie, two leading investment practitioners, describe how impact investing has become a relevant tool in philanthropy and is leading investors to prioritize social good.


Listen to hear how impact investing differs from traditional grantmaking, and how this philanthropic tool leverages financial capital and human resources to get important community projects off the ground. You will learn how all three organizations use this model to support especially underserved communities and address inequities in affordable housing, education and more.


In SVCF’s Philanthropy Now podcast series, we explore trends in the world of philanthropy, social impact initiatives in Silicon Valley and beyond, and we look at how SVCF promotes innovative philanthropic solutions to challenging problems.
