Journey To Impact: Implementing a 100% Responsible Investing Objective
Thursday 23 July, 3:00 pm SGT
Aligning a foundation’s endowment with the values, principles and focus areas that guide its grant making brings more opportunity for impact, but barriers remain to understanding, accepting and embarking on this ‘Journey to Impact’.
Join us for this webinar that traces the journey of the Australian Communities Foundation, as it transitioned to 100% responsible investment of its endowment.
