Free social investment guide published by Cass Business School

Did you know that many charities have difficulty grasping social investment and the great bearing it can have on funding?

Fortunately, Cass Business School's Centre for Charity Effectiveness has created a way to assist charities that have difficulty grasping the concept. The school is offering a beginner's guide to social investment, included in their Tools for Success kit, to any charity that fills out a survey.

The guide is divided into several segments. Help topics range from explanation of social investment, its usage and how to deliver it. It also includes an analytic tool with 26 helpful questions that will aid charities in determining if social investment is right for their organization.

The kit will debut May 25, 2016 at World Humanitarian Summit and on July 5 at Honorary Treasury's Forum symposium.
