Marcum Social Capital Advisors provides an exclusive platform that connects socially conscious investors with entrepreneurs committed to making the world a better place.

Investors and philanthropists alike are looking for new, effective, and efficient ways to fund social change. Yet far too often, traditional philanthropy models fail to move the needle. We know, because we’ve been active in this sector for more than 30 years.

Social Capital Advisors offers a new standard for making change happen.

  • We listen to your specific areas of interest and focus and guide you toward appropriate social ventures that also have the ability to receive and report return and impact.
  • To protect your investment and boost your success rate, we provide consulting and back-office support to your entrepreneurial teams.
