Join us for a one-hour, participatory video/conference call with other JFN members who are involved in impact investing. This is the second JFN virtual meetup on this topic, but funders who are currently impact investing are welcome whether or not they participated in the first.
Funders have a full range of tools to invest capital for good. Some philanthropists use impact investing as a complementary tool with their grantmaking as a way to diversify their portfolio or to use the returns as a way to fund more giving. Either way, the attraction is the same: investing to make a difference. For funders engaged in this work, peer learning can help us achieve more.
This call is not a traditional webinar — it will be an interactive opportunity to learn and share with one another.
We’ll begin with a 20-minute briefing by two leaders from JFN member organization The Nathan Cummings Foundation, who have inspired the Jewish philanthropic world with their announcement that they would move their nearly half-billion-dollar endowment into 100% mission-aligned investments. James K. Cummings, Secretary and Trustee, and Bob Bancroft, Vice President of Finance, will briefly discuss that decision and its implementation.
Then the floor will be open to participants, who can ask questions of James and Bob, share your own methods and approaches, and get feedback from other participants.
Please note: This webinar is for funders who are actively working on impact investing initiatives, and is not intended to be an introductory conversation.
