Mulago Foundation

Mulago Foundation provides funding for organizations that work to aid those in extreme poverty. Mulago funds a lot of early stage organizations. They also fund organizations taking proven solutions to scale. Mulango operates like a philanthropic venture fund where impact serves as an analog for profit, and cost-per-impact sits in for return on investment. Mulango funds organizations that tackle a basic need of the very poor, have a scalable solution, and know how to deliver it. They focus on the basic needs of the very poor, most of whom live in rural settings.
Priorities:
1. Livelihoods - mostly smallholder agriculture
2. Health - primary healthcare and behavior change
3. Conservation - where it benefits the poor
4. Energy - home cooking, lighting, and power
5. Education - mostly primary
6. Amplifier - solutions to make organizations more effective
