dear FriendS,
For those o us interested in the work o social entrepreneurs, the past year witnessed anexplosion o activity rom all quarters. The work o innovative, new organizations has beenthe catalyst or important conversations about value creation and the kind o world in whichwe all want to live.For decades, the social sector has been bedeviled by the lack o simple, all-encompassing measures o success like “return on investment” and “effi ciency” that are the common currencyo business. As social innovators search or a way to communicate the power o their newsolutions, they are attempting to reconcile these compelling business measurement constructswith the messy reality o societal change and its hard-to-assess outcomes. Echoing Greencontinues to be on the rontline o these critical debates.In particular, many in our community are deeply engaged in the attempt to create a new assetclass called “impact investing,” which generates returns or investors that are simultaneouslynancial, social, and environmental. Our community is part o the discussions that are setting expectations or the marketplace o investments, pushing the eld to develop better metrics,and pressure-testing tradeos between growth and exit strategies, and impact and prot.Our work with young people on college campuses and beyond is infuencing (and being infu-enced by) their sense o how business and social objectives should come together in the world,refecting their ocus on harmonizing economic success with meaningul service to theircommunity. The Echoing Green community continues to inorm the way institutions o higherlearning think about their roles in preparing tomorrow’s talent to take on and solve today’schallenges. And we continue to both spark and engage in dialogues that bring diverse audiencestogether, sharing our unique perspective on a human capital approach to social innovation.Your collective eorts have propelled us to a new level o leadership requiring a more robust organi-zational response. A multimillion-dollar, multiyear capacity investment by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation has provided us with the growth capital to do just that. We remain grateul or andinspired by your vision or what solutions-oriented civic engagement can unleash around the world. And we look orward to our continued work together as we think big, act boldly, and drive change.Sincerely,
david c. hodgSon
