Impact Investing: Catalyzing New Resources for Northwest Indiana
While Northwest Indiana has a robust philanthropic sector, the scale of resources available for improving the quality of life in our community pale in comparison to the challenges we work on every day. Impact investing—making for-profit investments that offer both a social and financial return—can help unlock exponentially more capital for good in Northwest Indiana, contributing to economic development while strengthening the sustainability of the organizations we support.
During this luncheon we will explore impact investing in greater detail: what is it, how does it work, and how can our assets help us achieve our mission? You will have the opportunity to hear from seasoned experts who are helping private investors make mission-driven investments, as well as local entrepreneurs using for-profit businesses to drive social and environmental change in the region.
