Getting Impact Capital to the Grassroots

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How do we fund grassroots experimentation? We will discuss systematic divestment from a global to a more local economy requiring grant making, Project Related Investments, Mission Related Investments, and creating a long-term commitment between philanthropic partners and those in the field. We will share our stories from the national and local scales to illustrate the emergence of strategies that target place-based, system-scale solutions.
