Council on Foundations Partners with Global Impact Investing Network and Mission Investors Exchange to Promote Investing for Social, Environmental, and Financial Returns « Public-Philanthropic Part...

Arlington, Va.––The Council on Foundations announced important partnerships with two leaders advancing social impact, the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) and the Mission Investors Exchange. The Council will add its complementary platform to amplify, convene, and connect around the good work of these two leaders.

Impact and mission investments, which include both below-market program-related investments (PRIs) and market-rate mission-related investments (MRIs), play a vital role in financing the ideas, organizations, people, and activities that create impact. Ultimately, the two partnerships will draw on decades of collective experience to catalyze thought leadership and increase the amount of financial capital invested in communities.

Reaching a wide array of impact investors from pension funds to foundations, GIIN is dedicated to increasing the scale and effectiveness of impact investing and serves as a forum for identifying and addressing the systemic barriers that hinder the impact investing industry’s efficiency and effectiveness. Mission Investors Exchange is a membership organization for foundations and mission investing organizations that use or are learning to use PRI and MRI investing as a strategy to accomplish their philanthropic goals.
