No matter what cause or geographic community you care about, you can find practical guidance, high-level strategies, and nonprofit examples to inform your philanthropy in the 2024 High Impact Giving Toolkit from the Center for High Impact Philanthropy (CHIP) at Penn’s School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2).

Produced annually, the toolkit provides individual donors and institutional funders with actionable guidance on how to use private, philanthropic resources for the public good. The website and PDF describe what high impact philanthropy really means and discuss the risks and rewards of supporting direct services, system capacity building, policy/advocacy, or research/innovation. This year’s toolkit also profiles nine nonprofits that serve as exemplars for how philanthropy can create greater social impact:

  • ADES
  • Build Up Nepal
  • Capital Good Fund
  • Genesys Works
  • Healthy Learners
  • HomeStart’s The Renew Collaborative
  • Inner Explorer
  • ParentChild+
  • Point Source Youth

“This toolkit is for anyone – whether they have $10 or $1 billion dollars – who wants to make the world a better place,” says Katherina ‘Kat’ Rosqueta, founding executive director of the Center for High Impact Philanthropy and faculty co-director for Penn’s High Impact Philanthropy Academy. “Each year, we make it available for free because we truly believe everyone can practice high impact philanthropy.”
