Social innovation funding (or social enterprise) has been around for almost a century through the groundbreaking work of pioneers such as YMCA and Girl Scouts, and today, for almost 50% of all social service agencies, it is not only a principle to earn unrestricted income come for their organizations but is also a way to advance their communities' social and economic goals. By the end of this session, you will have learned how to uncover and evaluate your strengths and assess which social innovation funding opportunities (e.g., social impact bonds, SIF grants) have the most promise for your organization.
Suzanne Smith is founder and managing director of Social Impact Architects. She serves as a coach and consultant for social organizations seeking to maximize the impact of their social strategies and achieve real, measurable results. Having spent the greater part of the past two decades generating innovative and breakthrough social ideas, she has been widely recognized for her success in building and implementing award-winning programs and initiatives within the social sector. She holds a research fellowship at the Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship at Duke University and serves as adjunct faculty at the University of North Texas.

Support Your Chapter's 2015 AFP Now! Campaign
Why is AFP important to me? How about you? To me, I have built a network of friends and fundraising colleagues, whose expertise continues to inspire me.
Because of this, I wanted to give back. I want to encourage each of you to join me in the AFP Now! Campaign. What is this, you may ask? The AFP Now! funds help support your local Dallas chapter in providing scholarships and enhance our local programming.
But why should I do this, you may ask? For me, I wanted to say thank you to my colleagues, and ensure our local programming was top notch. For you, it may be to help the next generation of fundraisers. Whatever your reason, I encourage each of you to give today.
Our goal for 2015 is $8,500. Will you join me in giving up a few cups of coffee, and click here to make your gift or pledge today!
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (972) 883.3728.
