funding systems change: challenges and opportunities

report: social innovation exchange


What is this resource?

This is a report produced from a workshop gathering of the Social Innovation Exchange (SiX) Funders Node, a pioneering group of leaders financially supporting systems change around the world.

Why is it worthwhile? 

The report briefly outlines the conceptual model of systems change that the participants and their home organisations use. It outlines four cases studies of large philanthropic organisations showing the challenges and opportunities for systems change from lived experience of system change makers. The case studies highlight elements such as selected leverage points, measurements for impact and enabling conditions.

Who is this useful for? 

This resource is useful to anyone engaging in systems change work who is seeking to better understand how it plays out in real-life contexts.
