Since our beginnings in 2004, Aeris has established risk management standards for private community loan funds (CDFIs) and has helped drive the development of impact measurement and management practices in the CDFI industry—a learning curve now being replicated in the broader impact investment world. In 2013, the Aeris Cloud became the first online platform to help CDFI investors understand the impact and financial performance of their investments. Today, the broader investing field seeks a reliable, high-quality tool to collect, manage, and analyze impact data. Aeris’ unique experience and expertise can help accelerate the pace of impact investing.

The Bairs Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that provides pre-settlement funding to families in need while they pursue justice. The foundation offers advances at the compassionate rate of 7% simple interest, as we are not looking to turn a profit or exploit individuals in a tough living situation while in litigation. We hope to change the non-recourse lending industry and to be advocates for plaintiffs.
We connect social entrepreneurs with the resources they need, convene events to strengthen the ecosystems of impact investing and social entrepreneurship, and catalyze 100% of our balance sheet for impact.
