AIM Philanthropy was established in 2016 as a partnership between two consulting firms, Nexus Research Group and trepwise. At AIM Philanthropy, we partner with our clients to make philanthropy more impactful by marrying organizational effectiveness and evaluative learning practices with grant-making strategy to help foundations achieve the highest possible social return on investment.
Having worked together on multiple projects, we have identified synergies in our work that are best addressed through collaboration. We see the need for integrating smart internal strategy, adaptive program design and evaluative learning to mitigate failed social programming resulting from operational and implementation challenges. Each firm brings decades of cross-sector, cross-issue experience and nuanced insight into what contributes to organizational and programmatic success.
While it can be difficult, achieving effective philanthropy is possible - with smart strategy, a focus on impact, and strong community and subject matter insight.
