Suzanne DiBianca, chief philanthropy officer and executive vice president of corporate relations at Salesforce, was among the first employees at the company and has championed social impact from the beginning. Building a $50 million impact investing portfolio is her latest initiative.

She led the creation of Pledge 1%, an effort to get corporations, with Salesforce in the lead, to commit 1% of their equity, time, product or profit. More than 8,500 companies in 100 countries have joined the pledge, she says. Those companies have donated more than $250 million and even more in the value of product donations.

In that spirit, DiBianca has led the effort to build an impact investment portfolio within the larger Salesforce venture fund of more than $1 billion. She notes that Salesforce is typically a series A or B round investor and won’t lead deals.

Open Road Alliance is perhaps unique in the philanthropic and impact investing world. The organization is a private philanthropic initiative that funds solutions to roadblocks in social projects.

Maya Winkelstein, executive director, and Caroline Bressan, director of social investments, explain that Open Road Alliance funds solutions to problems that pop up in otherwise fully-funded projects.

Given that almost every project involves unforeseen problems, learning more about Open Road Alliance seems like an important investment for nonprofit leaders and social entrepreneurs.

Michael Leoni didn’t set out to make a documentary film. A playwright, he had produced a play about homeless teens and would occasionally invite young people from the street to see the play and provide feedback to keep the show authentic.

Two of the young women he’d come to know were murdered. He decided there was a story to tell and a need to compel others to be of more help. He planned to produce a short public service announcement and took his gear out to the streets and began filming, one at a time, each with permission, the members of a street “family.”

After spending almost 24 hours with them with the camera running, he realized there was too much to share in a two-minute PSA. Ultimately, Leoni’s documentary, American Street Kid, was filmed over a seven-year span. Along the way, he launched a nonprofit called Spare Some Change to help young people find a way off the streets.
