Local Impact Investing for Appalachian Foundations: Opportunities and Examples

The Appalachian Investment Ecosystem Initiative and the Appalachia Funders Network are offering an action learning series in November to help regional funders – community, health legacy, private, family foundations – deepen their understanding of the breadth of role(s) they can play in driving more capital into their communities. The series will also provide concrete tools and strategies for bringing together different types of capital, from different ecosystem partners, to make investments happen across the region. 
Session 1: Not by Grantmaking Alone
Wednesday, November 2 
12:00–1:30 PM ET
Session 2: Thinking Differently about Risk, Return, and Community Impact
Wednesday, November 9 
12:00–1:30 PM ET
Session 3: New Partnerships for Community Impact through Investment
Wednesday, November 16 
12:00–1:30 PM ET
Regional foundations are encouraged to invite board and staff members to learn together. The goal is to develop common language and understanding of the concept of “integrated capital,” share tools and strategies for driving larger-scale capital into community priorities, and deepen relationships and collaborative opportunities across philanthropy, public agencies, and regional financial intermediaries.
