Impact Investing: Case Studies from Families Along the Journey

Speakers from our impact investing Mini-Plenary "The Other 95%" will stay to continue the conversation at this breakout session.

There are a lot of decisions involved in the path from converting to impact investing as your foundations continues to show the impact of this work.  An increasing number of giving families are exploring impact investing, dedicating either a small portion or, in some cases, all of their assets to this approach. Learn from the experiences and lessons learned of how families are navigating this across different stages.
