Programme Related Investments (PRI) are a type of social investment that can be made by charities. They are charitable objectives and a financial return - although the financial return may be at a lower rate than an investment made with only a financial return as its aim. When making programme-related investments, the usual rules (as set out in the 2000 Trustee Act) obliging trustees to make the highest possible financial return do not apply. For example, a large operating charity may choose to lend money to a smaller charity with similar charitable purposes: the larger charity accepts that it could have made more financially if it invested in the commercial markets, but it is giving up part of the financial return to boost its social return.
Program Related Investment. An investment by a foundation NOT in the form of an outright grant that serves to accomplish a charitable objective. Once an investment is determined to be program-related, it is considered a qualifying distribution and counts toward satisfying the foundation's 5% payout requirement.
