Silicon Valley Technology and Social Finance: Aligning Values and Community Change

A Case Study of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation

Questions:

How is Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) redefining "community" locally, nationally, and globally?

Brief:

This case examines how SVCF, the largest community foundation in the world with more than US$8 billion in assets, helps high tech billionaires turn their charitable investments into powerful social change in 91 countries. SVCF uses a variety of tools, including grantmaking, donor advised funds, program-related investments, mission-driven investments, and social impact bonds. This analysis also examines what can go wrong when Silicon Valley values don't align with community needs.
