Big Bet Philanthropy
Partnership, Risk-Taking, and Innovation in Philanthropy
Multimillion-dollar philanthropic investments are a powerful way to advance social change. Yet there aren’t many such big bets. While social change dominates major donors' objectives, only 20 percent of big-bet dollars go to such causes. We seek to catalyze a significant increase in the number of big bets devoted to inequities.
