A group of the world’s leading philanthropists today announced the formation of Co-Impact a new global model for collaborative philanthropy and social change at scale. Co-Impact will invest US $500 million in three critical areas – health, education, and economic opportunity – to improve the lives of underserved populations across the developing world.
Co-Impact is founded on the belief that achieving these goals requires collaboration and partnership, long-term support for promising approaches, and a commitment from key actors to change underlying systems. Systems change succeeds by bringing together local communities, non-profits, governments, business, donors, and others to drive lasting change beyond what any individual actor could possibly do alone. Co-Impact’s role is to connect philanthropists with each other and with social change leaders to develop, support, and invest in proven solutions that are ready to scale even further.
