In 2013, the Citi Foundation invested more than $11 million in support of Enterprise Development programs that drive innovation and thought-leadership while building knowledge for the good of the sector. As part of this investment strategy, we support organizations that play an important role in coordinating the activities of investors and intermediaries to maximize impact. We have increasingly invested in better understanding how finance can play an important role in fostering job creation in supply chains. We see supply chains as important drivers of economic growth and opportunity. At the local level, we recognize that investments in organizational capacity and direct service are also valuable. We have a particular interest in investing in organizations that promote "triple bottom line" returns in financial, social, and environmental impact including sustainable supply chain finance.
