As part of our endowments with impact programme, we have compiled a set of resources that trusts, foundations, and other endowed bodies may find helpful as they explore this work.

Below are a selection of impact-enabling investment policy statements (IPS) and other resources that practitioners in the sector have found useful and informative as they develop an impact investing practice in the main endowment.

If you would like to submit a resource for inclusion, please contact

How to use these resources

These resources have been collated for trusts, foundations and other endowed bodies interested in developing an impact investing approach. They are organised in three sections:

  • a collection of publicly available investment policy statements from across the UK, USA and Canada that specifically target positive social and environmental impact alongside a financial return
  • further reading around integrating impact into investment strategies
  • networks and communities available to support organisation doing this work
