Trusts and foundations have led the way by making social impact investments that align with their charitable mission and a growing number are taking a holistic approach to managing their endowment by understanding the impact of all their investments. Foundations also provide catalytic grant funding where it is most needed, convene potential partners around a social issue and provide invaluable thought leadership.
