Greater Share: An Innovative Philanthropic Investment Model

Greater Share believes that when investors unite around a shared mission, long-lasting, systemic change can result. Launched earlier this year, Greater Share is an innovative philanthropic investment model that provides selected non-profit organizations (NGOs) with long-term, recurring funding, helping them to achieve their mission of closing the education gap.

Greater Share’s first-of-its-kind philanthropic model allows investors to donate the majority, or all, of their capital gains to proven NGOs, providing them with sustained, unrestricted, long-term funding support.

KIPP Public Schools is proud to have been selected, along with seven other high-impact education NGOs, as a member of the Greater Share portfolio. Recipients span the globe and were selected from over 4,000 organizations by an esteemed panel of education experts evaluating mission, scope of work, evidence of impact, commitment to equity, and focus on historically underserved groups.

A key criterion for selection was alignment with Greater Share’s theory of change. Greater Share believes in the power of a child-centric education model, that includes not just teachers, but also school leaders, parents, caregivers, counselors, community workers and other adults vital to the education process.

“Our hope is that Greater Share’s innovative model is the start of a new breed of philanthropic investment,” shared Paul Fletcher, Co-Founder of Greater Share. “It is clear that the issues facing humanity cannot be answered by individual interventions. The only way we can hope to solve them is through collaboration, through a collective model bringing together powerful ideas, approaches and new learning. Greater Share is an invitation to investors, private equity and NGOs to be part of this journey.”

Support from Greater Share will allow KIPP to increase and extend its impact to more communities nationwide. We are grateful to have a partner that believes in our mission and shares in our vision that every child grows up free to create the future they want for themselves and their communities.
