The European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA) have published a new report which examines the potential for funders to provide non-financial support.

The report is  targeted at the Venture Philanthrophy /Social Investment sector and plots the cost and value-add of non-financial support.

The guide outlines:

  • The variety of non-financial support services that exist-
  • How to map your assets and prioritise the non-financial support you offer
  • How to organise non-financial support internally
  • How to assess the organisational needs of the social purpose organisation
  • How to assess the cost and impact of the non-financial support effectively
