In Their Own Words

Building Impact works with forward-thinking philanthropists and change agents to catalyze systemic change around the most pressing social issues. Combining deep expertise in effective philanthropy, advocacy and political strategy, coaching and convening, Building Impact works with our clients to develop the knowledge, skills, and mindsets necessary to be more effective change agents. While our starting point is unique with each of our clients, all those we work with share an interest in leveraging their capacity to transform a pressing social issue – from education to healthcare to housing and beyond. We believe philanthropy is a critical lever, providing patient and flexible capital that can help overcome barriers to meaningful change by developing and customizing solutions for specific contexts and communities. Transformative change of this kind is complex and requires sustained effort and focus. To be effective, philanthropists and change agents need committed partners who understand the extent of the challenge and potentially promising pathways for change. Building Impact seeks to be this kind of partner, helping our clients have meaningful impact by providing ongoing and customized advising, coaching, and convening services.
