ICSF works with the worlds most promising social impact solutions - to end the worlds greatest social needs. We help them achieve the change they aspire to. We believe proven social impact solutions must operate at a much greater scale to achieve significant transformational change. We also know that social change makers and innovators will have more meaningful impact by building on what already works, rather than constantly reinventing the wheel.
Since it was founded in 2011 as a registered charity, ICSF has worked with over 100 social impact organisations, grown to 18 staff with offices in London UK, San Francisco USA and Melbourne Australia.
Turnover this financial year is GBP1.6m with a GBP2m forecast for next. Clients include Shell Foundation, Gates Foundation, USAID, and many other well respected organisations.
