What is Giving Compass?
We connect donors to learning resources and ways to support community-led solutions. Learn more about us.
The urgency and size of the problems we face require that we work differently. Everything at our disposal is now a mission-critical resource ... Philanthropy’s financial tool kit should include every investment instrument, all asset classes, and all enterprise types … We plan to invest 100 percent of our endowment—as well as other forms of capital—for mission.
In the coming years, the Heron Foundation will emphasize “connective investing” in US communities, providing financial and other forms of capital. It will continue to seek allies and build connections with those who have muscle and capital market reach.
