Impact Investment Fund

We believe that to make a meaningful difference in children’s lives, more effort and money needs to flow to innovative and entrepreneurial solutions.

Save the Children recognises that traditional development approaches alone are not enough to solve the world’s social challenges. That’s why we are establishing a $10m Impact Investment Fund. 

The Fund will invest in enterprises working to improve the lives of vulnerable children. The Fund will help them scale up, leveraging the strength of Save the Children’s existing global platform, networks and capabilities to achieve meaningful social impact. 

What we invest in 

The Fund will focus on enterprises that: 

  • have a positive impact at the core of their business
  • are already generating revenue 
  • have a strong and scalable business model. 

The Fund will provide flexible finance from $100k - $1m. It will invest in both not-for-profit and for-profit organisations, and enterprises can be in Australia or overseas.

Our impact themes

The Fund will concentrate on areas of activity critical to improving the lives of vulnerable children.
