Since committing to fully align our investments with our mission, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund has cut fossil fuel exposure to less than one percent of our portfolio. Financial performance over more than five years has outstripped the market benchmark.
As part of the RBF's efforts to better align our investment practices with our mission, we have set a new goal to invest 25 percent of our endowment with firms majority-owned by people of color and women.

We at the Rockefeller Brothers Fund are leveraging our resources to the fullest extent possible to support these efforts to respond to the health, social, and economic impacts of the coronavirus spread in our community and around the world. We urge other funders—and all others who are able—to join us in supporting nonprofits who are rising to the occasion during this once-in-a-generation crisis.
