Oct 18, 2010, 10:08 ET from Changing Our World

NEW YORK, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Changing Our World and The Social Investment Consultancy (TSIC) UK today announced a wide-ranging strategic initiative to serve the needs of global health and relief institutions worldwide.  This exclusive alliance creates the most comprehensive set of services available to international fundraising and philanthropic organizations.  

The agreement was affirmed by Mike Hoffman, Chairman and co-founder of Changing Our World and Jake Hayman, co-founder of TSIC and Chief Executive Officer of TSIC UK.  In addition to their work with current organizations and charities, Changing Our World and TSIC will provide services to major corporations seeking effective ways to engage with the world's most pressing social issues.

"Jake was one of the first people to recognize the evolving relationship between global non-profits and the private sector," said Hoffman. "He has been a leader in innovative programming to help public/private partnerships deliver on their missions.  We have a shared vision for the future of social investment and we're delighted to be working more closely with TSIC."

"Changing Our World has built a unique global expertise in fundraising and philanthropy," said Hayman.  "This initiative with Changing Our World will enhance our ability to respond to the needs of global health institutions in a comprehensive and compelling manner anywhere in the world."

Currently, Changing Our World and TSIC are working together with Sabin Vaccine Institute and the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases to make significant improvements in global health.  Michael W. Marine, CEO of Sabin Vaccine Institute, has said of this alliance, "Bringing Changing Our World and TSIC together in support of our work has created unique opportunities for Sabin to both deepen its current relationships and to seed significant new opportunities.  We think their shared commitment to new partnership models reflects our organization's values and commitment to new strategies and innovation."

Global Health and International Relief

Fundamental shifts in the service delivery chain for global health and relief organizations have created a need for innovative non-profit/private sector collaborations.  In addition to expanding their private sector revenue programs, global health institutions are responding to these changing needs by re-inventing their traditional governance and infrastructure models.  These developments put a premium on partnership development and partnership management; governance and leadership engagement strategy; fundraising program design and philanthropic market entry planning, expertise which the Changing Our World / TSIC alliance is designed to deploy.  "Philanthropic leadership today needs to be embedded in organizational structure and fundraising strategy," added Hoffman.  "We help our clients design their programs so they can navigate effectively through this new public/private landscape."
