Impact Investing

Whether called impact investing, mission investing, program-related investing, or sustainable and responsible investing, foundations increasingly seek to leverage financial markets for social gains. These resources help your foundation explore the emerging strategies and diverse options available.

In-Depth knowledge on Impact Investing

We are pleased to share a practical toolkit for community foundations looking to engage their donors in an impact investment program. Developed by Imprint Capital in partnership with The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, the toolkit outlines the entire process—from feasibility through implementation—to help a community foundation incorporate donor-advised funds (DAF) into their programs. Thanks to a generous grant from The Rockefeller Foundation, Imprint was able to test the concept with four community foundations fom 2010 to 2012 and identify multiple approaches to operating a DAF impact investment program.
