impact investing

We believe every action we take should have a positive impact, and that includes how we choose to invest our financial assets.

Impact investing is a growing field of investment that intentionally creates positive social or environmental impact as well as a financial return, and measures both.
(Impact Investing Australia)

Claire Brunner, our founder, passionately believed that impact investing has the potential to make significant societal change.  donkey wheel has committed to becoming 100% impact invested, and to encourage others to do the same.

In 2010, when we first became involved in impact investing, there were few impact investment opportunities in Australia.  The Difference Incubator was specifically created to address this by working with social enterprises to make them investable.
