Taking on impact investing often requires board approval. Yet impact investing is still quite new terrain for many board members. What’s the best way to engage board members so that they are supportive of the development of an impact investing approach that best suits your foundation’s mission?
Join us for this program where board members share how impact investing unfolded at their foundations. Hear their thoughts on optimal board education and engagement processes, as well as how to help your board clarify its impact investing goals.
