    • We Got Funded! What Social Innovations are Being Funded?
      2011 Nonprofit SummitMay 12, 2011
      Pittsburgh, PA
    • 33. Top Five Myths and Facts of the Social Innovation Fund
    • 34. Myth #1: Only relevant for large, national foundations
      FACT:
      Intermediaries include two state-wide health foundations, a local United Way agency, Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and DC-focused Venture Philanthropy Partners
      Many community foundations, local United Way agencies among subgrantees
      Funding partners include many regional foundations, corporate foundations, community foundations and small family foundations
    • 35. Myth #2: All the grantees were just the “usual suspects”
      FACT
      The Edna McConnell Clark Foundation
      United Way of Greater Cincinnati
      Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky
      New Profit Inc.
      Missouri Foundation for Health
      REDF
      Jobs for the Future, Inc./ National Fund for Workforce Solutions
      LISC
      AIDS United
      NYC Center for Economic Opportunity/ Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City
      Venture Philanthropy Partners
    • 36. Myth #3: The money is only going to large cities on the coasts
    • 37. Myth #4: Everyone must have randomized control trials as evidence base
      FACT:
      CNCS is committed to funding promising efforts with only preliminary evidence so that they can access Social Innovation Fund funding to build their evidence base over time.
      Preliminary evidence = based on a reasonable hypothesis supported by research, such as pre- and post-tests or outcome studies tracking participants’ responses at the end of a program.
      One goal of SIF intermediary evaluation plans should be to increase the number of programs over time that have moderate or strong evidence of program effectiveness.
      * From CNCS 2011 NOFO and related FAQ
    • 38. Myth #5: There is no money available for new grants
      FACT:
      Social Innovation Fund FY11 appropriations at level funding of $50 million
      Approximately $15-20 million available for FY11 appropriations for new grants
      FY12 President’s budget request is $70 million
