GreenLight Fund 17-18 Annual Portfolio Report

Posted on October 30, 2018

Each year, there’s one phone call our executive directors love to make. It’s the call to let an organization know we’ve picked them to join our portfolio in a GreenLight Fund community.

This phone call is both an ending and beginning. It’s the end of a year-long selection process, one that includes intensive diligence, calls with management team members, a site visit, and an in-person pitch with members of our local Selection Advisory Council. And it’s the beginning of the kind of relationship that is central to GreenLight Fund’s mission and work.

Launching an organization off the ground in a new community takes hard work, grit and determination – even if it’s a model that has scaled before. We know this because it’s a process we’ve seen unfold over 22 times in 5 different communities across the country.

We couldn’t be prouder of our portfolio, showcased here in our 2017-2018 annual portfolio report, and the impact these organizations bring to the communities we serve. Our portfolio reflects the heart of who we are at GreenLight Fund: evidence, sustainability, impact, and the thousands of lives touched through our life-changing innovations.

Please read our 2017-2018 Portfolio Report today, and join us in celebrating their strength, growth and impact in the communities we serve.
