Mission Investors Exchange to Host Uplift America Webinar

Mission Investors Exchange will host a webinar called Unlocking Investment in Rural America: A Systemic Approach to Partnerships for Impact on Tuesday, December 13 at 2pm. 

From MIE's description: 

This webinar illustrates the leadership role that foundations can play in leveraging additional dollars for communities in need.

The efforts you will hear about in the creation of the Uplift America Fund are resulting in stronger local community infrastructure, reductions in poverty and access to almost $500 million in federal dollars that otherwise would have been left on the table.

  • Discover how foundations are playing a leadership role in leveraging capital for communities they care about.
  • Learn how a combination of grants, guarantees, and loans can work together to strengthen community development financial institutions (CDFIs) and their work in low-wealth regions and Native American communities.
  • Understand how this framework for multi-sector place-based solutions could be applied in your own community to facilitate funding for community projects such as schools, food banks, child care facilities and health clinics. 

Mission Investors Exchange will be live tweeting during the event. Follow @missioninvest and #UpliftAmerica on Twitter to participate in the conversation!
