Two years in the making, this practical publication features case studies and detailed guidance for individuals, families, foundations, and corporations. Written by Steven Godeke of Godeke Consulting and Patrick Briaud of RPA, it features input from over fifty experts and practitioners.

The Handbook covers:

  • The Why Developing a theory of change by merging impact goals with investment goals.
  • The How – Building or shifting a portfolio using the full range of impact tools and structures.
  • The So What Measuring success through leading principles, frameworks, and standards.
