Lisa Green Hall is joining the Case Foundation to lead impact investing efforts.
Hall will join the D.C.–based foundation created by Steve and Jean Case as a Senior Fellow. She will also hold that role at the Beeck Center at Georgetown, which works on social impact using data, technology and finance tools.
Impact investing is an investment strategy which puts funds toward a goal of doing social good as well as generating financial returns. For foundations, it unites the mission of the grantmaking side with the desire to build a money-generating portfolio on the endowment side. As leaders have put it into practice, it has brought changes to how philanthropic organizations operate.
“The Case Foundation has worked for many years to do our part to help drive the Impact Investing movement from niche to mainstream,” Case Foundation CEO Jean Case said in a statement. “As a highly respected, global leader in Impact Investing, Lisa’s deep expertise will help guide our work moving forward to capitalize on the growth of the movement and ensure we have the greatest impact.”
Hall previously worked as managing director at Netherlands-based Anthos Asset Management, and served for three years as CEO of the Calvert Foundation, where she worked from 2005-2013. She also served as a policy advisor at the National Economic Council under President Bill Clinton’s administration, working on the creation of the New Markets Investment Tax Credit.
“Lisa’s experience spanning the financial, philanthropic and public sectors will be a great asset as we work to bring more investors into the fold, build out the Impact Investing ecosystem and position the sector for long-term growth,” Case said.
