A working knowledge of the emerging trend of returns-based investing, also known as Impact Investing, is essential for all nonprofit directors, development staff and board leaders. In fact, this expanding field is quickly overtaking grants as the single most important nonprofit funding strategy. This workshop is designed to ensure your nonprofit is ready for this changed landscape. It will build awareness of the growing field that is expanding the potential for nonprofit funding to include Program Related Investments, Impact Investments, Social Impact Bonds and other methods that tie financial investments to social returns. This represents a major shift in the direct funding of nonprofit work — beyond the traditional grant making that is so familiar and towards new partners and sources of capital from the business and finance sectors.
