Nuts and Bolts of Launching a Place-Based Impact Investment Initiative

2:30pm - 3:30pm, Tuesday, September 10th
The concept of place-based impact investing has taken hold across the country and it makes sense for community foundations to take a leadership role in putting assets to work to address their communities’ greatest needs. Unlike traditional philanthropy that typically relies on grants, community foundations have created new initiatives that invest in nonprofits, community development organizations and social purpose for-profits entities for local impact. Learn the various ways that community foundations have structured their programs including their sources of funds, governance, types of investments, focus areas, risk management and underwriting processes.
