Social Impact Bonds & Pay for Success Strategies: What’s the full story for private and public partners?

Join your colleagues for a conversation on the emerging model of social impact bonds (SIBs) and pay for success (PFS) strategies. How does this influence or impact funding strategies for both public and private funders? What is the ultimate end game for these strategies? Join experts from the field and academic researchers who are analyzing this new model and asking important questions about the viability and impact of this approach to social and system change.


  • Introduction: The purpose and mechanics of PFS/SIBs
  • Examples of SIBs: An overview of PFS/SIB projects launched and emerging in the US, New England, and Connecticut
  • The Philanthropic Perspective: A peer-to-peer discussion on the role philanthropy can play and what is being learned through these projects.
  • Q&A and Wrap-Up
