Meet the Grantmakers & Learn about Social Impact Investing on May 19

This presentation of the Foundation Center’s “Meet the Grantmakers” program brings an adept panel of social impact investors to the Foundation Center. Join them for an evening of lively dialogue as our panelists share their experiences and insights in funding community education projects. To lend their perspectives to the discussion, they have also invited recent recipients of social impact investment grants to take part in the program.

The panel will address:

  • Definitions of social investing and how it differs from traditional grantmaking
  • Impactful social investment strategies for community education
  • Particular challenges associated with working in this mindset
  • Varying perspectives on best practices of both the investors and the nonprofit organizations in which they invest
