Charities and Canada’s Social Finance Market 1:00 pm
Charities and Canada’s Social Finance Market @ Webinar
Jun 25 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
There is growing interest in social finance from government policymakers who see it as a tool for scaling innovative solutions to complex social and environmental challenges. For not-for-profits, social finance offers a new source of capital that could allow them to diversify their revenue streams and become more resilient in an increasingly precarious funding environment. While social finance could have a transformative impact on the funding and financial landscape, relatively little is understood about its implications for charities. This webinar presents the results of a national survey of over 1,000 registered charities undertaken by Imagine Canada to better understand charities’ current readiness to participate in Canada’s growing social finance market. This webinar is brought to you by Charity Village and is intended for nonprofit leaders and professionals who would like to learn more about social finance.
