What We Do

Invest in what works

Building a better, more inclusive society.

REDF’s sole focus is to accelerate the success of employment social enterprises —mission-driven, revenue-generating businesses that employ, empower, and invest in the potential of people. In partnership with our generous supporters, the investments we make transform lives, strengthen families and communities, and help build a better, more inclusive society.

Invest financial and intellectual capital

We provide capital and a range of capacity-building support that amplifies our investments and leads to impact at scale. That’s REDF’s brand of Venture Philanthropy.

Advance the employment social enterprise field

We build strategic partnerships, create and share resources, advance supportive public policies, and develop a robust evidence base to grow the employment social enterprise field.

Measure impact and amplify success

The challenges facing our society are complex and interconnected. To implement solutions, we test which models and practices are working, strengthen the most promising, and scale those that work.
