Aligning Philanthropic Values with Investments in a Donor Advised Fund

A few of our examples:

The Community Investing Fund

This donor is knowledgeable about investing, supports progressive local, movement building nonprofits and values local, potentially high risk/high reward/high impact investments.  The Community Investing Fund therefore now holds:

·         A private fixed income investment in an early stage organic baking company that centrally includes persons coming out of incarceration as employees

·         A private equity holding in an early stage energy conservation company

·         Specific public equities in water/solar

·         Fixed income community loan fund notes

·         Cash (providing immediate liquidity for grant recommendations)
