The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) is a worldwide network of 175 diverse organizations in the impact investing marketplace. Its members include institutional asset owners, pension funds, insurance companies, asset managers, intermediaries, and advisors. Collectively, these institutions target investments across a range of sectors, stages and geographies, applying a variety of investment and impact strategies. GIIN’s overall mission is to increase the scale and effectiveness of impact investing by: (a) facilitating greater and more effective capital deployment to address pressing social and environmental needs; (b) raising awareness of impact investing; and, (c) enabling a credible and lasting practice of impact measurement. The proposed grant provides two years of general operating support to help GIIN carry out its core research and impact measurement activities. Grant funds are being used to cover staffing costs, professional fees, travel costs and overhead.
