100% Impact Endowment
SK2 is aligning 100% of its endowment resources with our mission and values to maximize our impact.
We believe foundations have an obligation to devote more resources to their charitable missions. Investing the assets from our endowment in alignment with mission and values objectives is a commonsense way to exponentially increase our impact.
Our endowment is being carefully invested to complement our mission and support broader progressive values, with a majority of those resources invested in smaller scale companies, funds, and initiatives that are not publicly traded, both international and domestic. SK2’s primary role as a foundation impact investor is providing flexible, affordable, and patient capital to socially and environmentally committed small businesses accelerating transition to a more equitable and sustainable world.
To address ongoing discrimination and overlooked opportunities, SK2 is also dramatically increasing investments in funds and companies led by women and persons of color. In the interest of transparency, current endowment impact portfolio investees, demographic data, and SDG alignment ratios are available below.
