Save the Children’s Impact Investment Fund

Save the Children recognises that traditional development approaches alone are not enough to solve the world’s social challenges. That’s why they are establishing a $10m Impact Investment Fund.

The Fund will invest in enterprises working to improve the lives of vulnerable children. The Fund will help them scale up, leveraging the strength of Save the Children’s existing global platform, networks and capabilities to achieve meaningful social impact.

What Save the Children invest in
The Fund will focus on enterprises that:

– have a positive impact at the core of their business
– are already generating revenue
– have a strong and scalable business model.

The Fund will provide flexible finance from $100k – $1m. It will invest in both not-for-profit and for-profit organisations, and enterprises can be in Australia or overseas.

Impact themes
The Fund will concentrate on areas of activity critical to improving the lives of vulnerable children.

• Health
• Education
• Child Protection
• Other Enablers

Investors and investment decisions
Save the Children’s Impact Investment Fund is a unit trust that will be open to wholesale investors.
All investment decisions will be made by an Investment Committee with deep experience in assessing and growing early-stage businesses, managing investments, impact management and the social sector. The Investment Committee also draws on the experience of Save the Children’s Board members.
