Community Foundation Field Guide to Impact Investing

Community Foundation Field Guide to Impact Investing

A review of impact investing practices, including impact measurement, for community foundations. Drawing from conversations with prominent U.S.-based foundations and mission investing organizations, the guide selects IRIS as a critical resource for foundations' portfolio management.

"[The] Impact Reporting and Investment Standards (IRIS), a program of the Global Impact Investing Network, is a catalogue of standardized definitions for performance measures by sector that can be used to understand an organization’s social results and make it easier to compare performance across an investment portfolio and industry-wide."
