Asia-Pacific Centre for Social Investment and Philanthropy

Centre for Social ImpactIn order to change the world for the better, it is not enough to simply give money and hope that things change.  Innovation, effective collaboration, careful stewardship and accountability are key to delivering effective change through social investment.

Like strategic commercial investment, successful philanthropy and social investment also require skills, information, and strategies. These can be learned. By encouraging a planned, strategic and businesslike approach to private and corporate giving, the field of philanthropy and social investment offers career opportunities and the fulfillment that comes with making a difference.
