CHAPTER 18

SOCIAL FINANCE
FINANCING CHANGE,
CHANGING FINANCE

Jed Emerson
Founder, Blended Value Group



It has long been accepted that financial capital is critical to social change efforts. Yet, it is only recently that social finance has been viewed as a defined and important marketplace.

Today, a myriad of financial instruments, ranging from the traditional grant to complex debt/equity hybrids, are available to nonprofits and social enterprises. These instruments come from a variety of sources, from the traditional grantmakers to new social investors.

At the start of a new decade and after a turbulent economic stress period, social finance offers unprecedented opportunities to innovate within capital markets for impactful investment and sustainable change.
