Post-Election Philanthropy: Safeguarding the Heart of Impact Investing
In the immediate aftermath of a momentous U.S. election, foundations and other institutions are keen to learn what the results mean for advancing their social and environmental missions. Impact investing has been able to harness the collective power of philanthropy, government, and the private sector to begin to address COVID-19, racial injustice, the climate crisis, and other challenges. As more investors are attracted to the field and motivated to achieve both social and financial returns, it is critical that impact remains at the heart of the impact investing movement.
Both philanthropy and government can and should play crucial roles in protecting the impact in impact investing and in developing new strategies to support the shift toward an impact economy. In this live fireside chat and audience Q&A, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker welcomes Matt Onek, CEO of Mission Investors Exchange, to discuss the impact investing ecosystem, post-election, and how philanthropy and government can more effectively address social and environmental challenges in the United States and in the rest of the world.
