Investors Report for the First Quarter of 2014
This year Global Partnerships (GP) celebrates its 20th anniversary as an organization and 10th anniversary as a fund manager. It's a big year for us, and there are many exciting things brewing at GP as we set our strategy for the next couple of decades. For example, in the near future (this Fall), our Microfinance Fund 2008 (MFF 2008) will mature. Through MFF 2008, we have been able to invest over $21 million into partners that serve people living in poverty. The fund's maturation means that we anticipate a financial return that will be used to seed future investments into more social enterprise partners.
Our latest Investors Report goes into more detail about MFF 2008 and our social investment funds, as well as discusses our recently expanded Social Investment Team and new Program & Impact Team. The collaboration between these two teams helps us to provide the types of capital and support our partners need, as well as understand the impact of partner program initiatives, and identify excellent programmatic opportunities in our four impact areas.
