Welcome to GIST Inititatives

A driving force for effective impact endeavours and smart, productive philanthropy.


The 8th Investing for Global Impact – A Power for Good survey has now closed.

With 302 participants in 2020, Investing for Global Impact – A Power for Good, is the largest global study of impact investing and philanthropy amongst individuals, family offices and foundations. We are excited to review the data and produce the research for our 2021 report.


What we do
