This practical guide plots the cost and value-add of non-financial support. It also recommends the best ways in which you can accelerate the progress of your investees and grantees towards producing solid societal outcomes.

The information has been the product of several months of EVPA research and discussions with a 24-member working group of practitioners, academics and service providers from 21 organisations, outlined below:

In order to make the report user friendly and easy to incorporate to your everyday practice, we’ve designed a number of tools to help you plan, deliver, monetise and value non-financial support. You can find these on our website here.

If you’re interested in hearing how selected organisations have organised non-financial support and why they think it is an integral part of effective venture philanthropy, we’ve asked four experts to provide their view on non-financial support.

We have also filmed the Madrid Annual Conference Session where we launched the report, you can view it here.

As we would like the research to be widely used by practitioners now and in the future, please do share this document with contacts that may benefit from it. We also welcome your feedback on the report and the tools we propose. You can email Priscilla Boiardi at or Lisa Hehenberger at
