About the Centre for Social Investment (CSI)

The Centre for Social Investment was founded in 2006 as a central academic institute of Heidelberg University cooperating with the economics, social science, law and theological faculties. Its mission is to:

  • Improve the theoretical and practical understanding of social investment, philanthropy, civil society, and social economy institutions;
  • Inform policy-making relating to social investment and relevant institutions at local, regional, national and international levels;
  • Build managerial and governance capacity in the field of social investment, and foster leadership and organizational effectiveness; and
  • Monitor major developments affecting social investment in relation to markets and government institutions generally, and with reference to philanthropy and civil society institutions in particular.

To serve these objectives, the Centre engages in four principal, integrated tasks on an ongoing basis: Research, Teaching, Convening, and Outreach. CSI runs a master's programme in 'Non-profit Management and Governance' offering interdisciplinary training for current and prospective executives in non-profit organisations.

About the CSI case collection

The CSI case collection comprises teaching cases and teaching notes supposed to serve as curricular material for academic courses on nonprofit management as well as executive trainings of foundation professionals. The case studies are based on the CSI research projects 'Strategies for Impact in Philanthropy' and 'Strategies for Impact in Education'.
