As SK2 Fund launches, we’d like to recognize RSF Social Finance and in particular their Integrated Capital Institute.Read more...
Our rebranding represents much more than a name and mission change. It is a substantive reinvention updating all facets of how we interact with and empower those we exist to serve.
On this page we will discuss controversial, even uncomfortable subjects SK2 and philanthropy generally needs to be wrestling with, for example:
• how to shift power and wealth to communities we serve;
• challenging the premise of win-win impact investment;
• democratizing and co-designing program, grant and investment objectives/terms;
• honoring local knowledge, expertise, and agency
• influencing much greater resource deployment and risk-taking by family foundations.
SK2 Fund is now implementing an integrated capital approach to pursuing a more equitable and sustainable world. But we are not experts in how to do this, in fact, we are only at the beginning of the journey, and there will be successes and failures along the way. Recognizing this, we will openly share what is working well and what is falling short in our philanthropic and investment approaches, including links to articles and other media shaping and challenging our current thinking.
"There is no path. You make the path as you walk.”
–Spanish poet Antonio Machado, from Proverbios y Cantares, 1912
