Workshop Series: Grassroots Community Engaged Investments
Join Transform Finance and the Center for Cultural Innovation for an invite-only virtual Workshop Series for funders. The workshop will assist funders in understanding and implementing Grassroots Community Engaged Investments (GCEI), a growing trend in philanthropy, community development, and impact investing that builds grassroots power by sharing decision making and governance in the investment process.
Building on a recent report from Transform Finance and an introductory discussion series, this workshop provides a space to learn from other funders who developed best practices in supporting GCEI initiatives, develop strategies for your own organization, answer your questions about deepening your power-building work, and forge connections with peers and experts to develop practices together. Altogether, it is a space to align place-based investment work and social justice grantmaking with a new paradigm in community development that builds power in addition to creating wealth.
The workshop is free of cost, but limited spots are available. The three sessions will occur virtually on January 11th, 18th, and 25th in 2022, at 1-2:30PM ET. See below for a link to apply.
