The Bridges Impact Foundation

The Bridges Impact Foundation provides catalytic support for innovative solutions that drive better outcomes for underserved people and the planet.

It was launched in 2007 to achieve impact in line with Bridges’ mission through the use of philanthropic capital – thereby inspiring and engaging the Bridges team – while also protecting that mission via an ownership stake in the management company.

The Foundation is funded primarily by the Bridges team, who donate 10% of all their profits from the firm’s investment funds.

The Foundation has three core goals:

Social investment

To provide funding and support for high-impact organisations and projects

Supporting the team

To promote and amplify the charitable efforts of the Bridges team

Building the market

To build the broader sustainable and impact investing market

Our impact in 2019/20

Our annual report for 2019/20 shows how the Foundation has succeeded in pursuing these three core goals.
