Our Program Related Investments (PRIs) are structured across different asset classes (E.g. equity, guarantees, loans, cash) and go to the support of diverse causes. Both social objectives and financial results are necessary for measurable achievements within each social enterprise invested in; PRI objectives are not guaranteed.
Glazier Program Related Investments (PRIs) invests in social enterprises that align with Glazier Foundation’s philanthropic mission. We are focused in three core areas of Global Development, Global Education, and Global Health. Our PRIs include public and private resources focused on supporting new delivery models solving complex social problems in our Focus areas.
Our GPRI’s focus on both domestic and international social sectors to support growth and efficient of socially minded entities. Glazier PRI’s are structured through traditional instruments and allow our Foundation to support innovations in disadvantaged and underserved populations that would otherwise go unsupported. There is inherently more risk in PRI investments due to the prioritizing the need to meet philanthropic goals before a high rate of return. Our teams work closely with all PRI portfolio companies to ensure that the charitable goals and objectives are met while blending both social and financial returns.
We believe that more creative solutions are needed to achieve social outcomes that afflict our Focus Areas and use our GPRIs to ensure that we can scale beyond traditional grants in order to advance social impact.
Glazier Foundation teams mentor all PRI portfolio companies through their business model innovation as they grow to find financial sustainability and resolve economic, social, and environmental issues. Our key involvement includes structured finance in both the underwriting as well as the impact investing financing structure themselves.
