To increase The Bryan Foundation’s impact, the Foundation undertakes Impact Investments. This allows the Foundation to use its corpus capital, in addition to traditional grants, to address social issues.
Impact Investments are made with the specific intention of achieving social benefits as well as financial returns.
The Foundation’s Impact Investments help to enable recipient organisations to transition from relying solely on direct grant assistance programs to more sustainable and measurable business operating models that align with the Foundation’s values.
The Foundation’s Impact Investments do not necessarily need to align with the education focus of its granting programs.
The Bryan Foundation has undertaken Impact Investments such as social impact bonds, concessional interest rate loans, guarantees and equity investments.
The Bryan Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests for Impact Investments.
