Scaling for Social Impact:  Perspectives from Both Sides

With growing pressures for increased effectiveness and efficiency in program delivery, scaling is emerging as a compelling solution to address serious social challenges. Scaling presents important opportunities and significant challenges for funders and grantees.

Hear from funders and nonprofit leaders about lessons they have learned from their experiences in scaling. Learn about the unanticipated implications, challenges and success of scaling, and why it’s a sound non-traditional grant-making strategy funders can adopt.



  • When scaling is the best option?
  • Different scaling strategies, and how do you decide when to use them?
  • Potential risks and tradeoffs
  • Strategies for assessing an organization’s capacity to scale and how can funders support them?
