Bridgespan research reveals that 80% of the biggest donors aim for dramatic social change with their giving, yet only 20% of the biggest gifts (for research purposes, identified at $10M or above) over the past decade plus have gone to such causes. The Bridgespan Group identified a number of barriers and stories of how some donors were getting beyond them in their Winter 2016 SSIR article, Making Big Bets for Social Change.

The Collective Impact Forum, a partnership between FSG and the Aspen Institute Forum for Community Solutions, invites you to attend the 2016 Collective Impact Funder Convening, Catalyzing Large Scale Change: The Funders Role in Collective Impact, which will take place on June 6-8, 2016, at the Westin Downtown Seattle.
