Guarantee Investment Value Strategies

Good Returns GIVS are an important innovation enabling capital to create sustainable, scalable social impact while targeting market-level returns with plannable liquidity.


Guarantors are key to the model, acting as the true facilitators of impact. They invest in a liquid low-volatility fund and pledge their holdings.
Capital partners provide low-cost or no-cost scaling capital to impact organizations.
Guarantors retain their capital plus return. Should a loan default occur, all guarantors share proportionally by making a charitable contribution from the fund.

How it works
