The Rockefeller Brothers Fund advances social change that contributes to a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world.
Motivated by a sense of responsibility that has financial, social, and ecological dimensions, the Fund prioritizes investment policies that enable the foundation to achieve its long-term financial objectives while aligning its investments with its mission of helping to build a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world.
The Fund has set a portfolio allocation target of 20 percent for impact investments, which we will seek to achieve over the next several years, while maintaining a diversified portfolio to preserve the real value of the endowment. The Fund’s priorities for investments from this 20 percent pool are focused on opportunities that align with the Fund’s grantmaking programs, including those targeted at clean energy development. Rockefeller Brothers Fund divested from fossil fuels and created a case study of its progress and results: Investing in our Mission: A Five-Year Case Study of Fossil Fuel Divestment at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
