“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 of all is a combination of clear next steps and the challenge to take action. Stephanie Gripne of the Impact Finance Center delivers a trifecta.”
“I have attended a lot of academic talks and yours has, in a sense, been one of the most transformative for me. I never envisioned looking at investments in the way that you explained so clearly, and I am looking at my future proposals in a different light.”
