What is venture philanthropy and social entrepreneurship?

Both venture philanthropy and social entrepreneurship have been around for several years, but have become more popular in recent years, especially in some parts of the country. (In fact, some foundations have practiced venture philanthropy for decades.) While definitions vary, venture philanthropy typically is characterized by the giving of time, business skills, and money over a sustained period to achieve systemic change and measurable results. InterAct for Change supports Social Venture Partners to do this. Social entrepreneurship usually involves helping nonprofits develop profit-generating activities.
