A funders network focused on building a social investment community across Asia, AVPN looks to encourage cross-sector collaboration and help their members invest more effectively.
AVPN sees social investment as a continuum that encompasses everything from philanthropy and venture philanthropy to impact investing, CSR, and sustainable investment. They refer to this as the “continuum of capital.”
The Chandler Foundation partners with AVPN because we believe in donor collaboration across the spectrum of social investment. AVPN is a champion of multi-sector collaboration among more than 600 members. For businesses and investors, this signifies integrating impact and purpose across their value chains and portfolios. For the Chandler Foundation, we partner with AVPN because collaboration is key. We have a shared belief that governments and markets are the most powerful driving forces of social and economic change. And, that together, we can go upstream to address some of the biggest challenges of our time including inequality and climate change.
