Every great change begins with one dedicated person

In 2014, Dinese Hannewald founded the non-profit company Grace Impact to support and promote projects and companies that wish to make the world a better place.
Grace Impact invests in three core areas as defined by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”):
“Clean water and Sanitation” (6)
“Health and Welfare” (3)
“Quality Education” (4)

Our regional focus: Africa, Europe and North America.

In order to qualify for a grant, a loan or an equity investment by Grace Impact, the project must fulfil three conditions:
Firstly – the product/service aims to be accessible to all people. Secondly – the product/service is affordable for the local population. And thirdly, the project/company has a business model that will eventually reach sustainability. Grace Impact offers a lot more than money. In addition to providing grants, sponsorships, loans and equity investments, Grace Impact supports projects/companies with consulting and hand-ons management tasks by offering these important in-house skills. We actively supervise and monitor our projects and companies and keep our partners and supporters informed.

Personal, professional, philanthropic

Dedication and commitment for a better world

Grace Impact works to improve lives of people, especially those who have been marginalized in society.

With Grace Impact, Dinese Hannewald uses her long-standing experience in evaluating, financing, managing and monitoring companies. She works to catalyze collaborations within the social impact and philanthropic sectors for a positive sustainable change in society.

Grace Impact is looking for partners who want to invest their money with heart, compassion and reason. Together we can create positive social and environmental changes. Together we can accelerate projects’ growth with scalable solutions. Together via meaningful and professional collaborations, we can avoid useless duplication and create a greater more successful and sustainable social impact.

Support projects, companies and NGOs, both for-profit and non-profit, that focus on solutions targeting the United Nations’ “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs).

Contribute to empowering marginalized and disenfranchised communities throughout the world and improve society-at-large.

Support successful business models that can be easily duplicated with layered capital, thereby accelerating growth, sustainability and a large social impact.

Every individual contribution counts.

But only together CAN we achieve more.

Grace Impact understands that the majority of SDGs cannot be cannot be solved by governments, private enterprises or charitable organizations alone. Rather, all of these groups need to work together in concert to achieve a sustainable success.

Grace Impact makes an important contribution to the philanthropic and social impact sectors with an aim to establish peaceful, healthier initiatives with complementary parties contributing know-how, patience, courage, and personal commitment. Please join us!

“If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.”

Investments

Our goal is to position our projects to succeed.

The social impact sector needs far more success stories. In order to mobilize an entire range of investors, ongoing projects and initiatives that show continuous growth and stability are required.
Grace Impact’s objective, along with others, is to reduce investment risk exposure within the social impact sector. For this reason, we prefer to support and work with companies that are in the development and growth phases, rather than brand new start ups. We emphasize the importance of establishing partnerships and cooperations to accelerate growth and sustainability. By working together to solve the same common objective, we have a far greater chance to ensure a positive social impact and a financial return.

We offer financial and hands-on support

We provide:

  • grants
  • loans
  • direct equity investments

Grace Impact remains informed on the company’s or project’s development and ensures that its milestones are on track. We are an active participant in all of our projects either as a member of management, board member or advisor.

Our Agenda for Sustainable Social Impact Investments

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. These 17 SDGs were adopted in 2015 to be reached in 2030. Grace Impact focuses its support and investment on the following SDGs:
“Clean Water and Sanitation (6)”
“Good Health and Wellbeing” (3)
“Quality Education” (4)

Our regional focus: Africa, Europe and North America.

Are you working on a similar or complementary project?

Access to “Clean Water and Sanitation” is a very important SDG for Grace Impact. We specifically seek collaborations with companies or initiatives that focus on scalable clean water and sanitation solutions, especially on solutions that can be easily duplicated in many countries and markets. Technology is not the top priority for Grace Impact, but rather how to distribute and connect to people in rural areas who lack access to clean water and proper sanitation. We would like to cooperate with you and/or invest in or lend to your company. Please write to Dinese or call:

Do you have jobs or job training opportunities for refugees or migrants?
