Impact Finance Center (IFC) and Commonfund Institute will host a webinar to launch our new national community foundation impact investing landscape scan – A Winding Road: Nine Community Foundations Share Their Journeys. This publication is part of our work with community foundations to build a national impact investing infrastructure. IFC and Commonfund Institute interviewed nine innovative community foundations about their impact investing practices and how they moved from idea to investment.

The nine community foundations span the country, from Tahoe Truckee to Topeka to New Hampshire, with endowments of $34 million to $2.9 billion and from five employees to 64. The practices range from screening endowment asset investments, to giving Donor Advised Fund holders impact investing options, to convening community members to harness assets for needs such as housing or place-making. Each journey and set of practices is unique.

The webinar will feature IFC’s own Stephanie Gripne and Commonfund Institute’s George Suttles in conversation with some of the highlighted community foundations. Please join us if you work in a community foundation or care about place-based investing; each interview highlights a unique approach to making impact investing a regular practice.

IFC and Commonfund Institute began this work with the sponsorship of Gilson Family Foundation and the Essex County Community Foundation. The publication will be available after the webinar.
