Opportunity Zones in Rural and Native Communities – A Funder to Funder Virtual Exchange

There are 328 Opportunity Zones (OZ) in the Northwest. Check out this map or this list of Qualified Designated Opportunity Zones by County. Is your community within an Opportunity Zone and you're not quite sure what it means for your foundation or your community? You're not alone. With all the news and hype that's surrounding OZs, it's hard to understand whether philanthropy has a role. This call will be particularly useful for place-focused foundations including community foundations, family foundations and issue-focused funders who support the vitality of our Northwest places that we call home particularly in rural and Native communities.
