NEW YORK – Guggenheim Partners is now accepting applications for the Network for Social Innovation (NSI), the firm’s venture philanthropy program designed to identify and support the growth of visionary non-profit organizations tackling some of the most challenging issues of our time.
Through the Network for Social Innovation, Guggenheim Partners will invest $100,000 in several high-performing, early-stage, non-profit organizations leveraging innovative solutions to solve enduring social problems. In addition, the firm will deploy its “creative capital” — any non-financial contribution that Guggenheim Partners can provide through accessing its employees’ and networks’ specialized skills and resources. In 2016, Guggenheim welcomed six non-profit organizations into the Network for Social Innovation and looks forward to expanding the cohort before the end of 2018.
“We are thrilled to combine our financial and creative capital to drive social impact through the Network for Social Innovation,” said Lauren Coape-Arnold, Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Guggenheim Partners. “The launch of our second NSI request for proposal marks another important milestone in the development and growth of Guggenheim’s commitment to social change.”
Interested and eligible non-profit organizations may submit applications online at www.guggenheimpartners.com/NSI. Applications are due by May 31 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Vetting will occur in multiple rounds, and organizations will be selected by year-end.
