Opportunity Zones: Can Foundations Help Communities Get Ready?

/ Webinar

Hosted By:
Council on Foundations

To help illustrate who might benefit from Opportunity Zones, this webinar will explore the roles foundations can play in this unprecedented, market-driven investment opportunity. Special guests from the National Governors Association and the Brookings Institution will join the Council on Foundations' congressional tax expert to kick off the discussion on how foundations might be players on both the investment aspect of the Opportunity Zones and on the social impact side. A panel of regional philanthropy and Community Development Financial Institution guests will share how they are thinking about this unique tax provision and what they are doing to get ready for alignment of philanthropic interests and education of their high capacity donors to co-invest with private equity investors.
