Did you know that the U.S. Department of the Treasury expects Opportunity Zones to unlock well over $100 billion in private investment in low-wealth communities across the United States? Are you prepared to help shape the impact of these investments?

The tax incentive, which became law as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, seeks to encourage long term capital investments in more than eighty-seven hundred designated census tracts across the country by permitting investors to reinvest capital gains in exchange for tax benefits.

Opportunity Zones are state-nominated, economically depressed communities that are in need of new investment and, done right, have the potential to support an asset building and an equity agenda. Foundations can and should play a role in supporting the eco-system that will ensure the success of opportunity zones.

Join us June 12th at noon ET (11 a.m. CT/9 a.m. PT) for a special briefing and discussion with funders and experts to explore how your foundation can leverage Opportunity Zones for real impact. We’ll delve into how and where funders can engage on this issue at the state and local levels, the power funders’ voices can bring to shaping how investments are made, and where to learn more about the regulations and implementation strategies cities and communities are undertaking. Investments are already happening, so you don’t want to miss this!
