International Support Foundation

The International Support Foundation raises donations to support a range of capacity building activities. They also enable Oikocredit to make local currency investments and work with partners deemed too risky by other investors.

Donations given to the Foundation are used to:

  • organize capacity building activities for our partners
  • set up social performance pilots 
  • finance our local currency risk funds and guarantee funds, which offset the risks of local currency loans and enable us to make risky investments in partners.

Making a donation

You can make a donation if you do not want to invest but still want to support our work.

If you are already an investor in Oikocredit you may decide to donate your investment.

The International Support Foundation also attracts donations from governments, NGOs and institutions that are not allowed to make investments themselves.
