How it worked

Funds 4 Food

1-on-1 Meetings

From June 15th to July 2nd 2020, institutional allocators and fund managers engaged in one-on-one video meetings to benefit charities that help people in need globally.
Funds 4 Food

Registrations

Allocators began by pledging to participate in meetings with fund managers of their choosing. The more meetings they pledged, the more managers registered, and more money was raised.

Across sectors

The whole spectrum of fund managers, including long- only, hedge, venture, private equity, real estate, private debt, infrastructure, and more, made donations to participate.
