Pro Bono Australia founder, Karen Mahlab has delivered her top 10 trends for the social sector in 2014.

Karen's predictions include:

  • The future of reform
  • Convergence of for good or for profit
  • Impact investing
  • Social enterprise
  • Corporate social responsibility and shared value
  • Using pictures to convey the issues
  • Measuring the physical effects of doing good
  • Philanthropy
  • Volunteering
  • Data

Many of the trends that were discussed last year (impact investing, impact measurements, collective impact, social enterprise) are ongoing and still developing in clarity and depth with the intermediary organisations necessary to make them mature, slowly emerging. A very interesting read as the year gets underway.
