We believe that what’s needed in philanthropy is social enterprise seed and scaling innovation capital coupled with long-termism and steadfast partnership.
In 2018, we established the Alliance Innovation Fund at the San Diego Foundation to enable others to join us.
Through our Alliance Innovation Fund, we seek to alter the status quo by funding innovation designed to advance the health and wellness of those most in need in our communities. We believe that owing to the already large ratio of dollars that flow into healthcare, we must innovate to reduce the overall cost to our system, while improving quality and increasing access for the most vulnerable.
We believe in the power of collective action, and are hopeful that our example will inspire others to join us.
Our commitment to progress calls us to be bold.
We have established a track record of sourcing, funding (over $12 million to date) and developing scalable social enterprise innovations through our i2 Innovation Initiative. Additionally, we have established an InvestUp (Futures Fund) and Impact Investment co-funding opportunities.
