Do you want to make sure that every part of your philanthropic effort moves your mission forward? You know what happens when you contribute funds to nonprofits, but what’s going on with the 95% of your money that is wisely invested to drive future grantmaking?

Join us to find out how to activate those dollars right alongside charitable donations and grants. We’ll hear from funders what internal and external changes are necessary to make sure that your investments are also advancing social and environmental change.

This is part of our learning series produced in partnership with Bank of America for institutional and individual impact investors. Each session invites speakers who contribute their subject-matter expertise to our conversations on strategy and skill-building approaches to impact investing. Join us to connect with peers, discuss collaborations to sustain resilient communities, and dive deep into wide topics ranging from strategic investments in small business and supporting regenerative economic development, to using loan guarantees to create a larger impact.

Target Audience

This is open to members of Catalyst, Northern California Grantmakers, and Southern California Grantmakers. Non-members may attend for a $50 fee.

If you require any accommodations to fully participate in this program, please contact [email protected].
