Global Reach,
Local Impact

A catalytic platform to advance and strengthen social investment globally to deliver sustainable, high-impact solutions to pressing social challenges

Regional networks that make things work

The four regionally-led networks collectively represent the largest global social investment platform. Our unique multi-sector approach represents the full ‘Continuum of Capital’, recognising the role of all forms of capital in creating social and environmental impact.

By leveraging this consortium of regional networks, IVPC has access to the local knowledge and partnerships necessary for deep impact. By coordinating globally, IVPC has the potential to achieve the scale required to meet our global challenges.

Featured initiatives

Leveraging our locally-rooted networks, IVPC drives collective impact at scale.

Global South Impact Community (GSIC)

Elevating the voice of the Global South

The Global South Impact Community (GSIC) is a group of impact leaders, predominantly from the Global South, convened by IVPC at The Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in July 2022 to generate new ways of thinking about development in the Global South in a post-pandemic world. We are currently working with the GSIC to further build this community and harness the potential of Global South leaders.


Unlocking capital into climate action

IVPC and Laudes Foundation, in partnership with WINGS, convened a group of capital providers on the sidelines of COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt in November 2022. As we recover from the pandemic while striving for Net Zero, it is more important than ever for global collaboration and catalytic finance to be leveraged for the transition to a green, resilient, and inclusive future.

About The Global Alliance for Impact Networks

Our Unique

The leading regional networks for social investment in Europe (EVPA), Asia (AVPN), Latin America (Latimpacto) and Africa (AVPA) are collaborating to create a first of its kind global platform for capital mobilization – helping the right money flow to the right opportunities to accelerate social and environmental impact.

Powered by the insights and deep relationships of our networks, the platform will also leverage the latest technology to recommend relevant opportunities and streamline due diligence and impact reporting. The effort is informed by more than a decade of ecosystem building and seeks to unlock more impact capital across the full continuum from grants to debt and equity.

Through our community of 1100+ impact capital providers we are well positioned to provide a bottom-up global pipeline of investable opportunities as well as connectivity to a vibrant ecosystem of unusual allies ranging from philanthropic foundations and impact investors to corporate impact vehicles, financial institutions and intermediaries. This initiative is focused on increasing access to finance for impact enterprises closest to the problems we need to solve while providing peace of mind for funders looking to support verified organizations with high operational and impact integrity.

The Global Alliance for Impact Networks aims to strengthen the social investment ecosystem around the world, leveraging our shared strength and unique approach:


Community-driven and Benefiting from Global Information Exchange


Breaking silos to Activate Multi-sector Stakeholders


Leveraging All Forms of Capital including Financial, Human and Intellectual


Aggregating International & Local Capital Towards Localized Solutions
