Aspen Institute

For The Support Of The Program On Philanthropy And Social Innovation

The Aspen Institute’s Program on Philanthropy and Social Innovation runs projects that apply the Institute’s significant convening power to the strategic pursuit of social change. In particular, the Institute hosts an annual meeting of the Aspen Philanthropy Group, a significant gathering of philanthropy leaders typically attended by at least one representative of the Hewlett Foundation. In addition to this primary gathering, the Institute runs social sector leadership development programs and shares knowledge on effective philanthropy and nonprofit practice via an array of communications, conference presentations and publications. The Institute also hosts a Nonprofit Data Working Group focused on increasing the amount of timely, readily available, high-quality information about nonprofit performance and sponsors an Impact Economy Initiative to advance the nascent field of impact investing.
