Our Philosophy

We believe that all investments have social and environmental impact in addition to financial impact. All the investment options offered by The Giving Fund are chosen for the opportunity to provide positive social and environmental returns, as well as the potential of financial return to preserve and grow your philanthropic capital.

100% Impact Portfolios provide diversified access to world-class fund managers addressing social and environmental issues across asset classes. These four portfolios have been designed for different investment and grantmaking time horizons, risk appetites and liquidity profiles. You may allocate to one or more portfolios.

Portfolios with a shorter time horizon feature liquid fixed income funds that prioritize capital preservation objectives. Portfolios with longer time horizons feature a greater percentage of public equities and private debt and equity, seeking the potential for greater risk and return.
