FINCA Advisory Council

THE FINCA ADVISORY COUNCIL is a global network of individuals and institutions working together to accelerate progress of market-based solutions that create opportunities for people to lift themselves out of poverty in a sustainable way.

 Advisory Council members are private individuals, family foundations, corporate and other institutional partners, and entrepreneurs.  Advisory Council members commit $10,000 or more annually in donated capital to advance the mission and work of FINCA International.  Advisory Council members are valued for not only their financial commitments, but also for their perspective, experience, and expertise.

Advisory Council members support FINCA International in several ways and at varying levels of financial commitment.

Members can designate their philanthropic support to:

  • An Investment Sector: Energy, Water / Sanitation / Hygiene (WASH), Education, Health, Agriculture, and FinTech
  • A Program Area: BrightLife, FINCA Ventures, FINCA Forward
  • Impact Measurement: Client Research & Field Data Services
  • Unrestricted Support: Provides flexibility and ensures your gift will be directed toward the area of greatest need.
