Intentional funding drives innovationProgressive philanthropy Focus areas

Our Activity

We hope that the “new philanthropy*” will become the norm in society, which focuses on social impact by using various funding sources more strategically, from donations to investments.

*”New philanthropy” is to combine various funding and business support methods for the public benefit, beyond traditional donations, grants and volunteers.

The SIIF members who has led the new philanthropy project leaves the organization to establish a new company. The company will continue to provide philanthropic advisory services to high-net-worth individuals and financial institutions. Additionally, the knowledge SIIF has accumulated in this area will be inherited and continuously shared on the company’s website.

SIIF will work closely with the company to further invigorate philanthropy in Japan, and will also focus on “catalytic capital” to create greater impact, specifically striving to build an ecosystem of impact-oriented capital that can be effectively used to resolve social issues.
