Impact investments’ double bottom line allows donors to accrue funds on a socially beneficial investment, which can then be re-invested and re-granted. The structure of impact investments varies, and possibilities for causes to support are virtually limitless. NPT has provided impact investment options since 2011 to help donors align their values and their investment selections.
NPT’s Impact Investment Offering
In recognition of our donors’ desire to maximize their charitable impact, NPT offers six exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on our DAF investment menu. Each of these ETFs address a range of social and environmental issue areas including low-carbon emissions, global education and labor management. ETFs work particularly well with DAFs because of their low cost, low risk, and high liquidity. Learn more about NPT’s ETF offering here.
NPT also offers impact investment notes, which allow donors to select from a range of maturity dates, minimum dollar thresholds and themes. For example, donors can invest in a 3-month note that focuses on food and agriculture, or a 2-year note that focuses on affordable housing.
NPT is proud to offer an impact investment platform as a way to provide our donors with an opportunity to maximize their charitable impact in line with their greatest values. To recommend that your donor-advised fund assets be invested in NPT’s impact investments, please follow these simple steps:
