Intentionally Designed Endowment Forum


Aligning Investment Portfolios with Institutional Mission, Values, and Sustainability Goals

January 15 – 16, 2015

Location: Arizona State University | Tempe, Arizona

The Intentional Endowments Network and the Arizona State University Foundation partnered to host a forum for colleges and universities and private foundations to address how endowments can be positioned to create a more just, healthy and sustainable society.  Our purpose was to help the leaders of these institutions examine how they might address these issues individually and collectively. 

This invitation-only event for higher education presidents, business officers, trustees, endowment portfolio managers, private foundation officers, and other key stakeholders offered a venue to explore possibilities, share best practices, and identify ways to work together to pursue solutions.  It was designed to actively engage all participants to develop the strategies, resources and support networks that will help them going forward and encourage participation by a larger group of institutions.
