Do you care about our forests, wildlife, clean air, clean water, rivers or climate? Have you been pitched to support a wildlife non-profit with a zero-interest loan? Or invest in a start-up that aids in water conservation? But you said to yourself, "I'm a donor" or "I would not even know where to begin?" Are you a donor who is curious about other tools you could use to support your values? If yes, an impact investing giving circle might be right for you. Impact Investing Giving Circles are using donor language and donor tools in partnership with community foundations to provide opportunities for donors who are curious about direct impact investing to learn, connect, and support social ventures for a small donation.In conjunction with the Impact Finance Center, a nonprofit academic center, we are launching a Sustainability Impact Investing Giving Circle and we want you to join. Whether you are completely new to the concept or someone with an established track record who enjoys mentoring others, we invite you to come to learn, grow and share ideas with peers that share your passions. Our collective donations will support a range of social ventures from loans to higher-risk equity investments all while maintaining a focus on sustainability and providing capital support for enterprises that are making our world a better place. Unlike other giving circles, if the capital is returned to the community foundation donor-advised fund, we will have an opportunity to recycle it and do it again.*This event is intended for investors and philanthropists only.
Light vegetarian appetizers and drinks will be served.
Business casual or casual.
