Join us for an intimate roundtable conversation to learn more about the New Profit Innovation Fund. JFN members who are curious about venture philanthropy, which takes concepts and techniques from venture capital finance and business management and applies them to achieving philanthropic goals, are invited to this breakfast to learn about the relationship between New Profit and its portfolio organizations.
New Profit is a 16 year-old venture philanthropy firm that has provided early financial and strategic support to more than 40 nonprofit organizations, including Teach For America, Health Leads, KIPP Schools, and Year Up. Its mission is to break down the barriers that stand between people and opportunity in America. The discussion will be led by Mora Segal, CEO of Achievement Network and a social entrepreneur from the New Profit portfolio, who will reflect on her special relationship with New Profit and the impact her organization has in the social sector. Eliza Greenberg, the architect of New Profit's core Innovation Fund, will comment on New Profit's unique "value-add" for selected nonprofits that are expanding social mobility and closing the opportunity gap.
One of our core values is areyvut, partnership, and JFN encourages partnerships amongst philanthropists within the Jewish community and beyond. We are pleased to have the opportunity to learn more about venture philanthropy together with New Profit.
