Investments

Pooled fund awards were made via our multi-donor funding vehicle.

Affiliate funded awards were influenced by the Agency Fund's scoping, review, due diligence, or technical assistance activities, but did not flow through its books. (The affiliate encountered the opportunity as a partner to the Agency Fund, or by referral, and made a direct award.)
