Proven Impact Fund
The Proven Impact Fund (PIF) is designed to allocate resources to organizations implementing any program reviewed and selected by the Proven Impact Initiative. 100% of each donation to PIF will be directed to proven programs, with no overhead taken by IPA, so that the full value of all contributions is used to support and expand effective interventions.
Funding directly supports programs that have rigorous evidence behind their success. The fund manager works closely with each organization's project team to see where and when an investment is most needed. All qualifying organizations have been evaluated by IPA or have been endorsed by a Research Affiliate or Research Network Member highly knowledgeable of their activities.
Because fund allocations are based on relevant needs and optimal timing of the various programs, financial support from the fund may vary over time. For example, in a given period, funds may be directed to cover a shortfall of deworming pills needed to complete annual treatment in a high prevalence region of Ethiopia, and in the next, funds could be used to help market new commitment savings products across the Philippines. One thing, however, will never change: each and every program funded by PIF is backed by substantial evidence of its impact.
