Brussels, 16 December, 2014 – The European Venture Philanthropy (VP) and Social Investment (SI) sector is reporting significant momentum over the past year, seeing a strengthening of all dimensions of the VP/SI method. The sector, dedicated to financing social purpose organisations, saw an 28% increase in average spend per VP/SI organisation, from €6.3 million over 2012 to €8.0 million over 2013.

With €5 billion invested in social organisations and projects since the approach started gaining ground ten years ago, the survey reports an increase in available resources for social purpose organisations and echoes a rising interest in social impact investing by governments and other players.
