Over the past year, we have been working on a more strategic vision for philanthropy. It is now part of VP Capital's overall strategy. We have also set goals on how much more we want to give, on top of our current philanthropic initiatives.
The following objectives have been anchored:
- Donate to
- Solutions for key challenges in each of our investment domains (planetary/societal)
- existing charity partners:
- locally to strengthen local cohesion
- In the domain "Health"
- emergency aid
- Dialogue with
- charities in terms of ESG and output-outcome impact
- family members about their personal donation budget
- family members about their involvement
With Sinzer, we have been working on identifying the key challenges in our investment domains. Based on these key challenges, we have identified investable solutions and philanthropic solutions. Our influence and knowledge are embedded in our investment domains. We foresee that investments will go to solutions for the key challenges in our investment domains. We realized that there are also many philanthropic initiatives in these domains.
Overview of philanthropic solutions
With these philanthropic solutions in mind, we created a list of 32 charities that fit into our domains.
We asked professional impact organization Telos impact (third party) to help us creating a shortlist based on extensive due diligence of impact/management & governance, financials, operations and a charity action plan.
We have the ambition to select all charities in the domains by 2021 and to increase our donation budget. This way, we invest in and donate to the same solutions. Philanthropy can accelerate the development of solutions.
