Persistent Problems Require Innovative Solutions

If you’re working to change the world for good and believe that philanthropy should be delivered more than as a passive charitable donation, we have an innovative approach for philanthropic contributions. LOHAS empowers parties to use donated capital for for-profit impact investing (no matter the cause, amount being invested, or type of investment) to help solve environmental and social problems while seeking market-rate financial returns.

Most donor-advised funds (“DAFs”) don’t allow donors to invest their funds in for-profit impact ventures (or in the entity and amounts of their choice). Funds are normally dispersed as generalized charitable donations, which may help with immediate challenges but don’t support specific sustainable solutions. LOHAS empowers donors to use their tax-deductible funds as they wish to achieve sustained positive change in issues of social and environmental concern. Learn More

Through the LOHAS Fiscal Sponsor Program (“FSP”), impact ventures may immediately take in investment capital via tax-attractive donations from a variety of contributors while also ensuring that the expanded fundraising story is developed and shared in the most compelling manner. Whether you’re an impact fund, company, project, or social impact entertainment production focused on delivering positive social or environmental change, LOHAS delivers alternative investment structures and strategies to accelerate the flow of capital to your impactful pursuits.
