Impact Investing is the practice of investing capital with the intention of generating a social, environmental or economic impact that is both positive and measurable, alongside a financial return. 

The Foundation’s impact investing strategy builds upon its leadership in strengthening Milwaukee’s neighborhoods, particularly through its equitable economic opportunity strategy. In response to the region’s challenges posed by both economic restructuring and a legacy of racial inequity, the Foundation’s strategy seeks to cultivate minority entrepreneurship; enhance workforce development efforts to increase employment opportunities; and support the creation of vibrant, mixed-income communities.
