What is Impact Investing?

Socially responsible investing that produces both financial and social returns. - Stanford Social Innovation Review

"Impact Investing has the potential to be something entirely different from philanthropy and investing, something that has the power to reshape longstanding economic barriers between one's wallet and one's heart, by fueling the creative fire behind social innovation and breaking down walls between the traditional public, nonprofit, and private sectors." -Report on the Virginia Impact Investing Forum: An Assessment of the Impact Investing and Social Enterprise Ecosystem in Virginia, August 2016.
