About Mission Investing

“Mission investments” are investments made by foundations and other mission-based organizations to further their philanthropic goals. Mission investments cover two distinct categories of investments: Market-rate mission investments, also known as “mission-related investments,” are part of a foundation’s endowment and have a positive social or environmental impact while contributing to the foundation’s long-term financial stability and growth. Below-market mission investments, also known as “program-related investments,” are designed to achieve specific program objectives while they may earn a below-market financial return.
