PHINEO is a non-profit research and analysis institute and consultancy for impact-driven civic engagement. PHINEO's mission is to strengthen the civil society and social impact in order to solve society's toughest challenges. They see both Impact Investing and Impact Donations as powerful catalysers to address these challenges.

- Market building - Through their publications, targeted public relations work and active contribution to industry initiatives, they support the development of this market.
- Consulting - They advise social investors regarding the conceptual design, development and the launch of new impact investment vehicles (e.g. Social Impact Bonds). Additionally, they support social investors in integrating strategic impact targets in their investment strategy.
Impact Donations: They identify projects with an exceptional high potential to achieve impact and to bring about social change and award them with the PHINEO impact-label ("Wirkt-Siegel"). Furthermore, PHINEO advise social investors about donating to high-impact non-profit organisations and projects that suit their philanthropic plans.
