Impact Investing

We seek to create meaningful impact not only through our grant making, but also through our investments. As such, we have joined Toniic's 100% Impact Network, a group of foundations, individuals, and other institutions that have committed to fully invest their portfolios in assets with a positive social and/or environmental impact.
