The work of integrated capital activation requires creative, intelligent, and passionate leaders called to move beyond “impact investing” and leverage capital as a powerful tool for long-term change. Prospective Fellows will possess self-knowledge as well as the skills to navigate power, conflict, and possibility. We aim to support those who may take on a holistic role with an investor, philanthropist, foundation, or integrated capital organization.
Candidates will demonstrate:
RSF Social Finance works to transform the way the world works with money. We experiment, learn, adapt, and push into new frontiers of what it means to serve the highest intentions of the human spirit through financial relationships.
Our team has a long-term commitment to:
Conscious investors and donors are hungry for a new way to engage with their money. Realizing there is such a thing as having “more than enough,” wealth holders are following their inner calling for justice and charting a new path aimed at creating long-term resilience for all.
We’ve seen this vision manifest as thousands of highly motivated people are activating the majority of their assets towards lasting well-being for society and the environment. They want their money to correct the injustices of the past, which have built extraordinary privilege for the few and severely compromised the natural world.
Unfortunately, this is no easy feat. Conventional wealth management is designed to drive money towards one primary goal: multiplying itself. This system leaves wealth holders feeling isolated and seeking answers to the questions:
How much is enough?
Where is my money invested?
What damage is being done by my money?
What is my responsibility?
How can my money help?
A new clarity is emerging, one that recognizes that the stewardship of great sums of money includes a duty to the greater whole. This clarity has engendered an entirely new form of activism, one in which money is used creatively as a powerful tool to improve the world. We’ve seen visionary wealth holders pioneer better models inspired by this conviction. These models need to be shared and adopted. When they are, we will see hundreds of billions of dollars shift to regenerative uses.
