Sasakawa Peace Foundation aims to encourage more foundations and family offices in the region to advance their mission using the full spectrum of their foundation’s capital. What are the opportunities and challenges on moving the foundation from its traditional areas of grant making towards making Mission Related and Programs Related Investments. On the program side, this workshop looks to explore how foundations are incorporating new social investment opportunities like impact investing into their portfolio; and on the endowment management side, how are they engaging in mission-aligned investing beyond traditional investments.
As part of the SPF’s Innovative Finance Initiative, this workshop will invite foundations and family offices in Asia to take part in a structured discussion, with the goal to share practices and suggestions and stimulate discussions on the opportunities and barriers for such advancement. It will also examine the challenges of working with stakeholders such as the wider executive team, trustees and board members, to enable support for these new MRI and PRI investments.
This workshop is by invitation and targeted towards foundations or social investors who invest their endowment or full portfolios towards impact. To receive more information, please contact Caroline McLaughlin.
