In 2009, we made program-related investments to 14 human services organizations that were providing food, shelter and other emergency services during the economic crisis. These three-year, zero-interest loans were designed so that the organizations might better meet the increasing demand for their services. We refer to this initial effort at social investing as our Community Relief Fund.
