The philanthropists, family foundations, and institutional donors in our network are unsatisfied with the status quo.

Vanessa Kirsch, Founder and CEO

We welcome financial support from philanthropists who want to work in partnership with New Profit to help a portfolio of breakthrough social entrepreneurs taking on America’s toughest, most entrenched challenges build high-impact organizations.

Active collaboration with our philanthropic partners is our driving force because they bring deep, invaluable experience to the table that would be lost if our work together was simply transactional. We offer a variety of engagement opportunities, such as mentorship and advisory engagements with New Profit and our grantee-partners, and participation in learning communities and events.

Our venture philanthropy model multiples the power of every philanthropic contribution made to New Profit by leveraging expertise in-house and in our community to surround social entrepreneurs with an ecosystem of support that helps them thrive. We also invest in new social innovations aimed at driving widespread change.
