We believe McKnight’s four-point framework can help any investor contribute to a truly resilient economy.
It is a practical framework that can be scaled up or down depending on financial and human resources, and it can assist experienced impact investors in flexing the muscle of their entire endowment.
The McKnight Foundation grants over $85 million a year to support nonprofit organizations working toward socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable communities. We will invest at least $200 million in investments with higher positive impacts. And we are finding other exciting opportunities to leverage our $2.3 billion endowment with our mission. Approximately $1 out of every $3 we invest is aligned with McKnight’s mission.
