We believe that our endowment investments should support our charitable mission.
Impact investments make up a small part of our portfolio. By investing in funds that “do good” while making a decent return on the dollar, we can enhance and extend our charitable impact. For instance:
The Centre for Social Innovation (Toronto) offers the purchase of bonds used to buy buildings.
“At CSI we are working closely with our community to foster collaboration and social change. The energy of our space comes from hundreds of exceptional people who visit and work here every day. We’re a community of nonprofits, for-profits, entrepreneurs, artists and activists working across sectors to create a better world.
