Mission Investing for Foundations
Mission Investors Exchange, a resource for foundations and related organizations that are using investments as tools for achieving their philanthropic goals, is the result of an integration between the PRI Makers Network and More for Mission. More for Mission, an effort by a coalition of foundations to advocate for market-rate mission investment within the world of charitable foundations, was established in 2008 and staffed by the IRI through the More for Mission Campaign Resource Center from 2008 to 2012.
Our work can be found here, and on the Mission Investors Exchange website.
