PRIs? MRIs? SRIs? L3Cs? Have you been wondering exactly what these terms mean and whether you might want to incorporate these types of investments in your grantmaking?
There will be an excellent opportunity to learn more about all of these at the MCN/MCF Joint Conference on November 5th and 6th. On Thursday afternoon of the conference there is a 3 1/2 hour session, specifically designed for grantmakers, that will cover all of these topics as well as the legal considerations.
Entitled Leveraging Your Resources: PRIs and Mission-Related Investing for Grantmakers, the session is being designed by Kate Barr of the Nonprofits Assistance Fund, Kathleen Fluegel of the HRK Foundation, and Karla Miller of the Northwest Area Foundation and will include a panel of people with extensive experience in these types of investments.
If you’d like to learn more about the conference, and the excellent learning opportunities that will be there for both grantmakers and nonprofits, please check out the Transforming Our Work from Challenging Times to Hopeful Futures conference website.
