What does it take to measure and fund positive social change?

Please join the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and Nonprofit Finance Fund for the launch of our new book, What Matters: Investing in Results to Build Strong, Vibrant Communities, and the beginning of a national dialogue around outcomes-based funding.

At this free event, we’ll explore how service providers, government, private funders, and others are working together to address entrenched social issues in our communities and focus on long-term solutions. Topics covered include:

  • What are outcomes, and how are they measured?
  • What innovative funding and financing tools are available to revolutionize our approach to solving big social problems?
  • How does current funding make it harder for service providers to offer long-term solutions, and what investments must we make in providers to facilitate this shift?
