Philanthropy has played a critical role in the nascent world of Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) and Pay-For-Success (PFS). Foundations can act as investors by providing credit enhancement, grants, and PRIs, but they can also increase demand for SIB/PFS projects. Many foundations are exploring ways to use these projects as a means to scale effective programs and catalyze government reform.

This session will focus on several models through which foundations can spur demand and support ongoing projects:

  1. Working directly with state and local government;
  2. Building provider capacity to participate in SIB/PFS projects;
  3. Piloting interventions to prove economic viability for government as a payor;
  4. Supporting robust performance measurement and management to ensure providers can achieve trigger outcomes; and
  5. Enhancing the evaluations inherent in the SIB/PFS model.
  • The role that foundations can play in the SIB/PFS space.
  • The different models through which foundations can spur demand and support their ongoing projects.
