Executive Summary

Grant giving foundation leaders are increasingly concerned with understanding the primary role their institutions are pressured to play in financing the growing non-profit sectors of developed economies. Furthermore, many academics, political leaders and practitioners are expecting foundations to play the unique role of merchant banks and venture capitalists to foster the positive impact of non-profit organizations on societies, people and issues they affect. The main contribution of this paper lies in proposing and testing a theoretical framework that foundations might implement in order to efficiently disseminate liquidity and managerial expertise among selected grantees as well as to improve grantees' social outcome.
