Our Investments

Open Road sees every grant and loan it makes as an investment for social impact. We provide fast, flexible capital via Charitable Grants and Loans. Our portfolios exclusively support mid-implementation projects to keep impact on track.

Investment Criteria
How to Manage Risk

We believe that in order to get the greatest social impact out of philanthropic dollars, NGOs and funders need to have open conversations about the risks involved in each project. When these conversations don’t happen, risks turn into roadblocks and impact is in jeopardy.
