Our social impact in figures

What we have achieved

The impact of our grants and social investments in numbers

Since Inception:

  • We have financed 107 institutions, disbursing more than 37 million euros
  • We  have incentivised a further 11.6 million euros from other investors as a result of our catalytic investment initiatives
  • We have donated more than 4,16 million euros to support the programmes of 28 other organisations

To measure the impact of all our activities, we have adopted a methodology to calculate the social impact of each investment and grant.

How do we measure it
Accumulated social impact by geographic area. Global impact: 3.1 million beneficiaries (2018) * Note: two entities with a global focus have not been included
