Speeches & Publications

The Morino Institute produces reports and points of view, and Mario Morino often makes speeches and presentations, on our issues of focus. Here is some of our work on Advancing a more effective philanthropy.

Venture Philanthropy 2002: Advancing Nonprofit Performance Through High-Engagement Grantmaking is Venture Philanthropy Partners' third annual report on this emerging field. Prepared for VPP by Community Wealth Ventures, the report is a useful resource for those working in venture philanthropy and other forms of high-engagement grantmaking as well as those interested in learning more about the field. The report emphasizes valuable lessons learned and features a series of essays from funders, recipients, and leaders in the field. It also includes comprehensive profiles of 50 national and international organizations involved in high-engagement grantmaking, as well as a detailed analysis of survey data tracking trends in the field.

Effective Capacity Building in Nonprofit Organizations, prepared by McKinsey & Company for VPP, brings some common language to the discussion of capacity building and offers insights and examples of how nonprofits have pursued building up their organizational muscle. The report contributes to the growing national conversation about how to help nonprofits become stronger, more sustainable, and better able to serve their communities. McKinsey & Company prepared the study at the request of VPP. McKinsey also developed a practical assessment tool for this report that nonprofits can use to measure their own organizational capacity. We hope that nonprofits and funders alike find value in this report.
