Overcoming many of the world’s most pressing problems will require harnessing the power of investment capital. That means mobilizing the full spectrum of capital—from institutional investors, such as foundations, pension funds, and sovereign wealth funds, to banks, retail investors, and others—to develop a more inclusive form of capitalism that prioritizes purpose alongside profit and benefits multiple stakeholders. It also means considering diversity, equity, and inclusion as a key part of those efforts.
Through strategic grantmaking, broader coalition-building, and our own financial investing through our program-related investment (PRI) and mission-related investment (MRI) funds, we aim to grow and strengthen the practice of impact investing, as well as influence the broader capital markets so they deliver equitable and sustainable outcomes for all stakeholders.
Please submit PRIs and MRIs to MIproposals@fordfoundation.org. If we are interested in learning more, you will hear from us within 45 days.
