Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.

Investor Spotlight: the Rockefeller Foundation

Dr. Judith RodinEach month, an impact investor discusses with the GIIN their motivations, their impact investment strategy, and challenges they face in this growing industry. This month we spoke to Dr. Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation. The Foundation supports work that expands opportunity and strengthens resilience to social, economic, health, and environmental challenges—affirming its pioneering philanthropic mission since 1913 to promote the well-being of humanity. Its impact investing initiative has aimed to catalyze platforms for collective action, support the development of scaled intermediation vehicles, build industry infrastructure, and support research and advocacy efforts.
