Impact Investing and Community Foundations: The Nuts and Bolts



Foundations looking to leverage more impact from their charitable dollars are increasingly looking to mission related investments as a key tool. But how can this powerful strategy be deployed alongside the place-based mission of a community foundation?

At the 2015 Council on Foundations Annual Meeting, over 100 conference attendees joined to hear the lessons learned from community foundations with a range of experience in the topic—from a few years to over a decade.

On July 30, at 3 p.m. ET, we’ll resume this conversation in our webinar “Impact Investing and Community Foundations: The Nuts and Bolts.” This conversation will provide a practical outlook on the pitfalls and opportunities presented when you look to begin an impact investing program.
