By activating endowments, community foundations can go beyond the impacts of their granting to have a greater impact on social change. Strategic investment practices can provide financial return for community foundations while investing in gender equality.
This open session will be led by Rally Assets, our partners with Communities for Gender Equality, to lead community foundations through an overview of impact investing. This will be an opportunity to understand new models for investing which yield required returns for your capital investments, while at the same time creating impact for social good.
What you will learn:
- The core principles of impact investing and how it fits into existing asset categories
- How to implement an impact investing and Gender-Lens Investing strategy
- Key governance considerations for incorporating impact investing and Gender-Lens Investing into foundation activities
Who is this for?
This event is part of the broader curriculum for Communities for Gender Equality Cohort but is open to all community foundations. It would be relevant for community foundations of all sizes and would be particularly applicable for senior leaders, finance staff and committee members, investment committee members and other directors.
