Community Impact Investing Round-table
Jun 11 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

Building on the success of previous events, the Intentional Endowments Network will host a Community Impact Investing Roundtable focused on opportunities for place-based investing. The Roundtable will convene endowment decision-makers and stakeholders from institutions interested in enhancing their leadership on sustainable investing.

As colleges, universities are often anchor institutions in their communities, the concept of place-based, community impact investing is a compelling prospect. In addition to generating acceptable financial returns for the endowment, such investments have the potential for many ancillary benefits. Because they support a more prosperous and thriving local community they can help improve “town-gown” relationships, lower crime rates, enhance safety, and attract students, faculty, and staff.
