An Eye For Business
Many of REDF's supporters come from the business sector. These donors are interested in achieving results, and seeing a return on their investment - in this case a social return in the form of lives changed and communities improved.
They recognize that REDF has pioneered real solutions to unemployment that are proven and sustainable. And they appreciate that REDF has developed the tools to gauge the social return on investment.
REDF donors respect REDF's leadership in the field of social enterprise - developing and sharing new strategies to help those who face chronic poverty find jobs and keep them.
They know that nationally and globally, REDF is looked to as the go-to source for practical tools for social enterprise and venture philanthropy.
Whether making a gift of $500 or $500,000, REDF donors make a long-term commitment to sustainable, scalable solutions that transform the lives of those who face the greatest barriers to employment.
People who support REDF are people like you. Please make a gift today.
"I approach philanthropy in the same way I approach business investments — what’s successful? Can we generate more solutions to poverty if I invest my time, money and leadership? With REDF the answer is yes. I continue to invest in REDF because it works."
