How we Help

The Social Impact Fund invests in community-led efforts that make neighborhoods healthier.

How the Social Impact Fund Works

No one knows what a community needs better than the people who live there.

The Social Impact Fund supports local organizations, small businesses or individuals with grants or loans provided by generous philanthropists. 

The fund is nimble and reactive and is designed to work in cities and rural areas alike. It meets entrepreneurs in the communities where they are and takes a bottom-up approach to finding solutions.
