FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

In most cases our initial grants are project specific. If an organization’s mission aligns closely with our mission, we may consider funding general operations. In general we do not make multi-year commitments to new grantseekers. We do not fund individuals, underwrite events or fund capital projects.

Several of our social enterprise and market-enabling partners now operate internationally across Asia, Africa and Latin America – delivering major social and environmental impact.

We form long-term partnerships with a small number of potential game-changers: pioneers of new products and services that deliver social and environmental benefit to low-income consumers.

We work to identify market failures behind four specific global challenges and use our networks to find possible partners. We’re looking for market-based solutions that can earn income, achieve financial independence and deliver significant impact on a global scale.

We deploy a blend of patient grant funding, extensive business skills and market links to accelerate innovation, help early-stage social enterprises achieve scale and financial independence and create specialist “market enablers” to remove barriers to scale and promote widespread replication.
