Program-Related Investments (PRIs)
Program-related investments are an important tool we use to provide capital to qualified organizations. These organizations—with demonstrated capabilities in areas consistent with our Trust and capable of entering into appropriately documented financial transactions—work with us to further social impact and financial objectives. Financial returns on our investments contribute to our resource base and will be reinvested in support of our mission. PRIs can include financing methods commonly associated with banks or other private investors, such as loans, loan guarantees, linked deposits, and
even equity investments in nonprofit organizations or in commercial ventures for charitable purposes.
