’360-degrees for Mission’ showcases SRI and impact investment at foundations

onValues has authored a report for the Mistra foundation entitled 360-degrees for Mission: How leading European foundations use their investments to support their mission and the greater good.  The report will allow foundations to learn more about sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) and impact investment, and to take practical steps to implementing these approaches in the management of their capital endowments.

The report highlights eight European foundations that use their investments to advance their mission and still generate strong financial returns.  Detailed case studies on the Church of Sweden, Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt, Dreilinden, Fondation du Luxembourg, Fondazione Cariplo, Fonds 1818, Friends Provident Foundation, and Mistra show both the challenges and the rewards of SRI and impact investing, and provide the reader with direct advice from the personal experience of foundation officers and trustees.

360-degrees for Mission comes at a time of renewed interest in how foundations invest their money.  The report directs readers to the variety of resources that can help foundations establish investment practices that are financially sound and enhance the contribution to their mission.
