GoATL Fund

Invest. Impact. Repeat.

Connecting capital to community causes

The GoATL Fund is designed to accelerate and sustain social outcomes in our community through impact investing, the concept that strategically invested capital can achieve both a positive social impact and a financial return. This innovative fund will provide cost-effective loan capital to address our region’s most critical needs, from healthy, safe housing for every family to new schools for 21st century learners and more equitable access to living-wage careers. The purpose of the fund’s investments will be to support causes and enterprises aligned with the Foundation’s Impact Areas that provide sustainable, long-term benefit to the community, while also achieving capital preservation and a measurable financial return.

Innovative Investing

As Atlanta’s first impact investment fund of its kind, the GoATL Fund will galvanize our region’s resources in order to drive greater philanthropy by investing flexible capital that continually recycles to serve our communities in need.

Consistent with the Foundation’s practices of identifying organizations and initiatives that best address the needs of our 23-county region, the GoATL Fund intends to make investments primarily through intermediaries (such as Community Development Financial Institutions – CFDIs), to scale and sustain nonprofits, social-purpose for-profits and other solution providers. Our lens on investment decisions will first be influenced by the opportunity’s ability to create a measurable social impact.
