Impact Investing Grants

© Upstart Co-Lab

A core value of the Compton Foundation is “all-in philanthropy”: aligning all our assets with our mission, not only our grantmaking budget.

In 2011, the Compton Foundation committed to moving 100% of its endowment into mission-aligned investments. We have also made a few grants to help build the impact investing field.

Investing with a gender lens. Beginning with our early involvement with Confluence Philanthropy in 2011, we’ve supported the growing field of gender-lens investing.

Investing in the creative economy. The “creative economy” includes cultural centers, affordable housing and work spaces for artists, and small artisan businesses.

Creating new access to capital.
