CALL FOR PROGRAM RELATED INVESTMENTS (PRI) PROPOSALS


To complement over a dozen years of grantmaking in the US Southwest, the Christensen Fund is inviting qualified social enterprises and quadruple bottom line projects to submit a proposal for funding from its Program Related Investments pilot. We are particularly interested in those institutions with a successful track record of establishing an enterprise or business. If you are interested in being considered for a PRI please review the priorities and parameters of our PRI Pilot. You may also want to be somewhat familiar with the priorities of our grantmaking programs with the PRI’s complement.

If you fit the parameters, please submit a Business Proposal of a dozen (12) pages or less which should include the following:

    • Completed Cover Sheet
    • A brief executive summary
    • The business case and strategy and how it fits into Christensen’s PRI guidelines
    • The management and staffing plan
    • Market and financial statement projections including cash flow projections incorporating a repayment plan for the PRI loan.

Please send your proposal to PRI_APP@christensenfund.org by 31 January 2017 with the subject line: ‘OrgName’_PRIProposal. Applicants proceeding to the second stage of review should expect to hear a response by 15 March, 2017.
