What We Do
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.
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.
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.
Measurement & Evaluation
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.
