Since we changed our name, this is the main question, especially since we now use the word foundation less frequently.

If we go to the more technical definition, social investment is a business or governmental practice whereby human, material, and financial resources are mobilized for the development of different social initiatives that generate positive impact in the communities and, of course, with the active participation of that community itself.

For many this is a new concept, for us it is rather a way of reclaiming philanthropy and using it as leverage for develop, evolving the issue of donations to position returns, whether financial, capacity building or reputational, at the centre of what we do. This undoubtedly requires the measurement of achievements through methodologies aligned with transparency and accountability. 

Donations, on many occasions, do not have the same rigorous monitoring because they are often understood as a charitable action.
