About this event

Tune in to the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s next Community Matters webinar as we continue exploring the complex issues surrounding community change — and the lessons we and others have learned from our work in communities throughout the country.

Transforming low-income communities into places where families have the resources to thrive often requires a mix of public, private and philanthropic investments. These place-focused investments can take a variety of forms, from traditional grant making and program-related investments to leveraging public financing and individual impact investments, but sometimes success lies in more unconventional approaches to financing community and economic development.

Discover how the Annie E. Casey Foundation and Calvert Foundation have used innovative financing strategies to foster positive change for people and communities throughout the country — and how focused, targeted investments can lead to an organization’s desired results.
