INSIGHT & COMMUNITY - PHILANTHROPY & IMPACT INVESTING
Gain Insights.The Social Impact Collective provides insight at the intersection of values and evidence to help members solve the problems they care most about, in strategic effective ways. The Collective leverages the world-class educational assets of UC Berkeley, and other leading institutions and organizations to guide members in their journey to have social impact through philanthropy and impact investing. We also work with key partners to help members move from insight to action. The Collective is ideal for high net worth individuals and families who seek:
- Insight and guidance from world-class thinkers and doers in social impact.
- An intimate cohort for support, connection, and potential collaboration.
- A safe, confidential space free from solicitation.
- An approach rooted in values of humility, continuous learning, and commitment to ideals greater than ourselves.
Join a Community.Collective members help craft a community of peers in two ways:
Every spring, a small cohort of 10-15 gather at Miramar Farms in Half Moon Bay, California for our transformative Discovery Weekend. Over that weekend, you will discuss and learn with our faculty and each other, the values and tools you want to bring to your work as a change agent. The cohort continues the learning experience as a group and individually for six weeks through a custom-built online course that guides you to distill the learnings of the weekend and create a plan anchored by the intersection of your core values and evidence about how to best solve the problems you care most about.
Upon completion of the online session, cohort members join previous cohort teams under the bigger umbrella of the Collective. In this life-long membership group, you’ll be invited to events on an ongoing basis to share learnings, keep each other accountable and to gain insight from great thinkers at Berkeley, Stanford and other partner institutions.
