No matter where your organization might be or want to be on the spectrum of impact investing, join Maryland Philanthropy Network, Chesapeake Bay Funders Network, and the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers for an opportunity to learn and share your experience with other funders. Toniic, a community of funders and asset holders seeking deeper net impact across a spectrum of capital, will also provide an overview of the many types and approaches grant makers can use to leverage capital for good. We will then hold a funder-only discussion to assess interest in a funder learning cohort specific to our region and/or the many opportunities emerging in the agriculture, climate, and food sectors.
Join Maryland Philanthropy Network's Green Funders Affinity Group to learn more about two recent action-oriented reports on climate change efforts in Maryland. Participants will also have an opportunity to discuss with grantmaking colleagues what are they are doing and can do in the climate mitigation and climate justice space. Through the conversation, we’ll lift up issues for further learning and potential collaboration in the environmental grantmaking space.
