All Donated Capital allocated to ‘Mission Related
Every £1 donated is leveraged with Social
Investment & Debt to deploy £4.
Investments secured against fixed and income-producing assets.
Commercial exit according to ‘capital
structure’, with surplus used for future projects.
JenLi is able to invest
virtually all of its principal into asset-backed projects, directly
within the local economies of deprived communities. This means that all
investments can be classified as ‘Mission-Related
Investments’ because they ultimately support the charitable
JenLi leverages every
£1 of Donated Capital with a further £1 of Social
Investment and £2 of Debt, thereby directing 4 times the
amount of an original donation towards deprived communities. This makes
JenLi more effective than a typical Foundation devoting only a portion*
of its principal to purpose each year.
