ERI is both a research institute and a social investment fund. ERI specializes in research and consultation services tailored to the specific needs of the impact sector (i.e. non-profits, social enterprises, corporate social responsibility and the public sector). We invest or donate 90% of our net profits to promote organizations that aim to address the root causes of poverty and social injustice.
