User Profile

The KL Felicitas Foundation was created in 2000 by Charly and Lisa Kleissner. Our mission is to enable social entrepreneurs and enterprises worldwide to develop and grow sustainably, with an emphasis on rural communities and families. See the KL Felicitas Use Case here for more information.


We use IRIS to: illustrate the social, environmental, and financial success of the foundation; nurture our investments; evaluate future investments; and provide needed performance data to share with a growing community of impact investors.

Other Impact Measurement Tools

We also use some non-quantifiable information about our investments to help evaluate performance; so we created a proprietary set of qualitative performance metrics to track throughout the full portfolio alongside IRIS metrics.
