In collaboration with Philanthropic Foundations Canada’s #WebinarWednesdays initiative, this webinar will help foundations to view the current pandemic through the lens of impact investing — what it means for impact investing and how impact investors can respond.

Despite and because of the current huge disruptions, this is a moment when substantial progress can be made to address key social and environmental problems. Yet foundations are struggling with short-term obligations, operational challenges and liquidity concerns. We have the opportunity right now to decide what we want the post-COVID-19 economy to look like and who we want it to serve and benefit. Foundations can play a large key role, both in the short term through emergency grants to the community, and as impact investors to create a post-COVID-19 economy that is more sustainable, equitable and just.
