Impact Investing for Foundation Staff and Asset Owners New To the Field
Mission Investors Exchange’s 16th Mission Investing Institute at the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice in New York, NY, will feature 2 ½ days of member-led sessions bringing together approximately 40 staff members from foundations or other philanthropic asset owners across the country. This intensive training experience is designed to help philanthropy professionals gain exposure to approaches that can help them get started in impact investing or advance their practice — whether they are part of a well-established impact investing program or developing one from scratch. Through interactive exercises in small-group settings, participants will hear from their peers in philanthropy, build relationships with fellow philanthropic professionals, and learn from seasoned investors in the field.
TIIP’s president and COO William Burckart will once again lead the keynote session on “Impact Investing 1.0”. During this session, Burckart will unpack impact investing, explore opportunities and challenges, and tease out implications for foundation professionals. Burckart will be joined by Noel Pacarro Brown, a Financial Advisor affiliated with Morgan Stanley.
