IMPACT

Since our inception, Triskeles has distributed millions of dollars to hundreds of nonprofits nationally and internationally.
 
Our approach encourages our donors to develop their perspectives, engagement, grant-making and investing to match their values and community needs.
What are the Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations has developed the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which provides a key framework for dignity, peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and in the future. These goals address and provide actionable plans for many of the world's most pressing issues. Whether your values align with any or multiple of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we can help reflect your values with both your charitable giving and within the underlying investments in your Donor Advised Fund.

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
