Webinar | Power Forward: How Foundations Are Embracing Impact Investing

November 20, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm America/New York Timezone
Impact investing is increasingly of interest to funders looking for ways to leverage the markets to not only gain financial return, but to create positive social and environmental change. Join us at 2 pm on Nov. 20 as we explore current trends in impact investing and learn how foundations can deploy their resources in ways that go beyond traditional grantmaking and align with their core values.

We’ll hear about foundations and how they were able to move from curiosity to concrete action, embracing impact investing individually and in partnership with other foundations. This webinar is organized by TFN’s Intermountain West Funder Network, which seeks to build philanthropic connections and meaningful engagement that will leverage funding and support for one of the nation’s most iconic and fastest-growing regions.
