Community foundation field guide to impact investing
This guide from Mission Investors Exchange and the Council on Foundations features resources and connections for community foundations interested in learning about, designing, and activating impact investing programs. The vision for this Field Guide came from the collective wisdom of a working group convened by the Council on Foundation in August 2012. Arabella Advisors was part of the working group that met over the course of the year to strategize on how best to move the community foundation field forward in impact investing. Cynthia Muller, Arabella’s director of impact investing, also contributed the Choosing Your Investments chapter.
Arabella channels its curiosity through Arabella Workshop. Here, we think through what is next for philanthropy and impact investing, exploring new ideas that will help our clients make the most of their resources.
Our latest project is our Greater Good blog, where we are capturing and sharing information we learn from our work, and providing insights about philanthropy, nonprofits, and impact investing. Check out our posts and let us know what else you would like to know about.
Our first project was the History of Greater Good, an interactive exercise about how people have used their resources – their time, money, and connections – for the benefit of others over the last 400 years.
Whenever possible, we share what we have learned from working with clients with the philanthropy and impact investing community. Browse our research below by issue area or asset type.
