Bridges Impact Foundation
Protecting our mission
Bridges was founded with a clear mission: to raise investment vehicles that target both societal and financial returns.
To protect and safeguard this mission, we founded the Bridges Impact Foundation (originally the Bridges Charitable Trust) and gave it a 30% ownership interest in the management company. This gives the Foundation an effective power of veto over any change to the manager’s founding mission.
The Foundation also serves to fund philanthropic projects that fall outside the scope of our usual investment activity. It is funded entirely by Bridges’ senior team, who donate 10% of their profits from our other investment vehicles.
