Client: Ford Foundation

Social Bond Anniversary

The proceeds of the bond enabled Ford to nearly double its grant making from approximately $550 million per year to more than $1 billion, the first ever issued by a philanthropy on the United States taxable corporate bond market.

The focus of the funding is to help support under-resourced areas in the US and around the world. Also, stabilizing and strengthening organizations that support the work of building a more just, and equitable world.
