PRI—Program-Related Investment



We use our strategic investment strategies, innovative approaches and invaluable business connections to link our clients to capital success.

Our approach

As private foundations seek to leverage their charitable assets more efficiently, Program-Related Investments (PRIs) are an increasingly attractive tool. PRIs present an innovative means to address pressing social problems.

We help clients to navigate this powerful tool, which can turn more than $100 billion of available charitable capital into investment capital, by using our strategic investment strategies, innovative approaches and invaluable business connections to link our clients to capital success.

We use our diverse connections and leadership within housing, economic development, health care and life sciences to link funders with entities seeking PRI capital while assuring all rules and requirements are respected.

We work to simplify the PRI process to allow nonprofit organizations to make sense of it all.
