The world is unpredictable. No matter how rigorous your planning, at some point events may throw you off script. Yet, the philanthropic financial market is not structured to deal with the unexpected. As a result, money is wasted and impact gets lost.

About Open Road

The world is unpredictable. No matter how rigorous your planning, at some point events may throw you off script. Yet, the philanthropic financial market is not structured to deal with the unexpected. As a result, money is wasted and impact gets lost.

To address this need, Open Road exclusively makes investments when a mid-implementation project encounters an unexpected roadblock or opportunity. We provide the necessary fast, flexible capital to help organizations overcome the frequent obstacles that threaten to derail impact. Through this strategy we seek to maximize both financial leverage and social return. Our strategy supports projects across all sectors and geographies.

In addition to cultivating our portfolio, we conduct research, generate data, share our learnings, and advocate amongst our peers. Our goal is to mainstream ‘managing risk’ as a ubiquitous concept in philanthropy. To accomplish this goal, we develop and disseminate best practices for the assessment and management of risk with the goal of protecting the integrity and impact of the original project.
