It’s super rare to get world class portfolio advice from someone who doesn’t have their hand in your pocket. It’s rarer to get a whole new framework for thinking about donations and philanthropic work. Rarest is all is a combination of clear next steps and challenge to take action. Stephanie Gripne and John O’Halloran of the Impact Finance Center deliver a trifecta.
— Jon Kauffman, Impact Investor
