Venture Philanthropy Partners: Investing in Social Change.

Leap of Reason

VPP published the book Leap of Reason: Managing to Outcomes in an Era of Scarcity with our longstanding strategic partner McKinsey & Company to inspire leaders in the social and public sectors to take bold action to create more meaningful, measurable good for those they serve.

The book, which features a core monograph by VPP co-founder Mario Morino and essays by several VPP investment partners, has become a widely shared resource for those seeking measurable change. According to the National Council of Nonprofits, “the book has hit a home run in the nonprofit community.” Now in its fourth printing, Leap of Reason is informing board retreats, strategic-planning efforts, staff-development initiatives, and university management classes across the U.S. and in more than two dozen countries around the world.
