New case study in partnership with the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation

Mission Investing: A Framework for Family Foundations

NYU Wagner's Social Innovation & Investment Initiative (SII), led by Professor Scott Taitel, is proud to announce the publication of a new case study, Mission Investing: A Framework for Family Foundations. Through support from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, this case reflects on the foundation's 10-year history of impact investing in both the US and India. 

In addition to discussing the foundation's organizational attributes that have led to many successful program-related investments, the case also outlines a unique MISSION framework that family foundations and others can use to begin or expand impact investing activities. You can download the full case using the link above and an Executive Summary is available here
