SharedImpact is the world's first global donor-advised fund, and is building the infrastructure for a global social investment market. The charity is based in London, New York and Hong Kong.

SharedImpact provides innovative financial support to charities and social enterprises, to increase their efficiency and effectiveness. It does this by providing the necessary infrastructure to enable the creation of a global social investment market.


SharedImpact is the charity behind the SharedImpact platform. Our mission is to increase the efficiency and financial effectiveness of charities, and to create new funding solutions for charities, social enterprises and other social purpose organisations. More information can be found on this website. 

Why we exist

Social investment can play a central role in transforming civil society, empowering more local communities, enabling more social enterprises to deliver public services and establishing more financially resilient charities.

Properly defined, social investment is the deployment of capital for social purpose - and which seeks a financial return (but not a profit-maximising one). This last point is often misunderstood. For businesses, profit is an end in itself. For charities, profit (or 'surplus') should merely be a means to an end - or to the fulfilment of a social mission.

However, the current infrastructure of the social investment market does a poor job of connecting the potential supply of such finance to the enterprises that need it most, so preventing a more sophisticated funding ecology from emerging.

SharedImpact was founded to strengthen the social investment infrastructure, and to contribute to building a robust social investment market.
