There are three core components to the Fund:
The Integrated Fund takes its name from our fundamental belief that for long term, sustainable growth in a community, the development of multiple sectors must be integrated. We recognize the complementary roles that the economic, health, and education sectors play within any community. For poverty to be effectively alleviated and livelihoods improved for the long-term, these sectors must be simultaneously impacted in ways that support mutual growth.
We define blended capital as the coordinated use of grants, loans, and equity investments to promote development within interrelated sectors. Our blended capital approach unites donors and investors through a common goal to create a lasting impact by strategically applying different types of funding as appropriate.
The Integrated Fund believes that sustainable development can only occur through a long-term, targeted approach that drives societal and economic change in tandem. To this end, the Fund concentrates its efforts on multiple sectors in one location over a ten-year period. Learn more about this approach and the rationale behind it here.
