Mission Driven Investing

FADICA’s Mission Driven Investing Member Group is dedicated to exploring and advancing this area of interest.

What is MDI?

Mission Driven Investing — also known as impact investing — is a way Catholic philanthropists can activate all of their assets in pursuit of their unique mission.

Double Bottom Line

Mission driven investments are made with intentionality and are designed to generate both a financial and social return. These investments come in a variety of shapes and sizes and exist across all asset classes.

“Mission Driven Investing is my passion. It’s a way for foundations to use all their assets to affect their mission, not simply the income they earn. When this happens on a global scale, we are going to unlock an extraordinary amount of potential to do good.”
