What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.

WHAT WE VALUE >

September 2011

In partnership with Leslie Christian and Portfolio 21 Investments, we have released a white paper questioning the foundations of current investment practice and proposing new principles for investing in the 21st century. We’re presenting this paper at a special session at SOCAP, which kicks off a busy fall full of conferences and events.  Speaking of events, we are beside ourselves with anticipation of Celebrating Rudolf Steiner, a festival we are hosting to honor Steiner’s legacy, 150 years after his birth.   In addition, check out some of our new borrowers, grantees and job opportunities at RSF!

RSF Social Finance Releases Innovative Investment White Paper at SOCAP11

What’s So Funny About Administration?

The philanthropic world has increasingly demanded more impact assessment and outcome tracking from non-profits. I have seen this at every Grants Manager Network conference I have attended in the last three years. Complex matrixes and measurement tools are shared and then implemented in the non-profit world.  It always seemed strange to me that a funder would be directing the outcomes, rather than the non-profits, or even the communities being served…Read the full post on the Reimagine Money blog.

RSF Staff at Work in the Community

It’s 2pm on a Thursday afternoon, and RSF staff members have their hands wrist-deep in dirt—soil, that is!  August 4th marked RSF’s second annual service day, where RSF staff members vacate their desks for an afternoon to spend time working with projects that give back to the community.  This year, staff members selected two local organizations to work with: the Community Garden Project of the San Francisco Waldorf School, and the Marin Headlands Nursery….Read the full post on the Reimagine Money blog.
