To acheive this, we actively seek out opportunities to achieve not only great financial returns, but significant social ones. Forum works diligently with non-profit organizations to develop and accurately measure impact.
Our commitment to social responsibility is one of our defining characteristics – at the very minimum, we want each of our investments to be socially responsible, and frequently decline opportunities that do not fit this mandate.
Whenever possible, we look to make investments that elicit measurable, material positive impact to people and communities.View case study
One example we’re particularly proud of us our partnership with WE Charity. In 2015, Forum donated $500K to develop water, healthcare, and education infrastructure in the rural Kenyan village of Kipasan. The village is home to 1,600 residents, including 1,000+ children under 18.
In 2016, Forum led efforts to donate another $500K, this time focusing on the village of Melelo. And in 2017, we sent a team of employees to the Kenyan Masai Mara region to witness the progress and contribute to community building efforts.
