Dr. Emily Gustafsson-Wright is a fellow at the Brookings Institution. She helped publish a report in summer 2015 with some of her colleagues entitled "The Potential and Limitations of Social Impact Bonds: Lessons From The First 5 Years of Experience Worldwide." Here we discuss exactly what a Social Impact Bond is, how it functions, and its potential ramifications for funding social service projects in the future. SIBs have only been around for 5 years, but they are already gaining a lot of attention, with potential investors ready to get involved in the game. So it is important to analyze what is working and what needs to be improved for the future.

As Vice President of The Morgridge Family Foundation, Carrie Morgridge has learned what works and what doesn't when it comes to giving. She argues that in order to ensure meaningful and lasting change, a gift must be more than simply a grant of money. The giver must assess whether the program is the right fit, work hand-in-hand with the key leaders on strategy, develop a plan for making the endeavor sustainable, and ensure that their gift can be leveraged to have a bigger impact on the community. By sharing real-life stories of how this hands-on approach to giving has transformed lives including her own, Morgridge inspires others to believe that they can also make a difference in their community, no matter the size of their gift. The most important message is that we all can get involved in some way. This is an inspirational and informative conversation

Kathy LeMay is the founder, President, and CEO of Raising Change, an organization that raises capital to advance social change agendas and increase philanthropic Participation.  Today she joins Philanthropy Hour to discuss the movement of humanity in philanthropy. She shares how her Generosity Plan helps steer individual givers towards finding their inner-inspiration and purpose. Everybody has the power to become a philanthropist. We must all "do what we can, with what we have, where we are." Kathy shares her own experiences of working with the victims of rape and genocide in war-torn Yugoslavia. She uses that experience to teach others that we all have an issue that motivates and drives us, and we can all put our talents to good use to make a difference. The act of philanthropy is more than just giving money, it is about becoming a more humane and connected person.  It is a powerful message.
