Social sector organizations are increasingly turning to impact investments as an additional funding source to supplement the funds raised through traditional fundraising and grant methods. Impact investors provide capital in return for expectations of financial returns from businesses whose primary focus is on generating positive social change. LawForChange has compiled some resources to help social sector organizations better understand the types of impact investments available and the legal implications for organizations seeking and receiving these investments.
