As of year end 2022, ABSF private sector impact investment commitments total approximately $4 million across 35 different funds and businesses. 47% of the investments are US-based, and 53% are international, with special focus on Latin America and East Africa. Our largest investment is $350,000 and the smallest investment is $15,000.
93% of ABSF impact endowment investments as of YE 2022 focus on gender equity, economic inclusion, and/or reduced inequalities (SDG 5,8,10). 69% contribute to environmental sustainability (SDGs 7 & 12); and 39% are related to educational opportunities and/or gender equity (SDG 4 & 5). Percentages total more than 100% because most investments address multiple impact goals.
Portfolio-wide, 41% of investments are in women-led businesses, and 18% in persons of color-led businesses. Redirecting our investment capital to both is a priority for ABSF. Our goal is to reach 50% for both and we will hold ourselves accountable to doing so.
