PRI & MRI Community of Learning

Sponsored by the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation


Two tools associated with impact investing, PRIs and MRIs (program related investments and mission related investments) constitute a topic of significant and growing interest among philanthropists. In an effort to help our members learn more about these tools and how they can make use of them to further their mission, we are initiating this community of learning.  The community of learning will include an overview of the tools, case studies, best practices, and more.
