    EPIP Philly - Happy Hour and Q&A

    EPIP Philadelphia is in a rebuilding phase!! This is a good time for those of us involved or interested in EPIP to connect, get to know each other, and share our ideas for how we can make EPIP Philly the best it can be. 

    In addition, many of our Chapter Leaders have leveraged their experiences with EPIP to move on to new stages in their careers. Though we are very happy for them, this leaves us with various positions within the Chapter Leaders group to fill. Filling these positions is crucial because current chapter leaders need help with providing quality events for the chapter. There are many benefits in being a Chapter Leader, including: 

     

    • opportunities to develop professional development programming and event for professionals in philanthropy; 
    • practicing leadership skills that you may not be able to use in your current job/position; 
    • connecting with chapter leaders in other cities;
    • distinguishing yourself as an early career leader in philanthropy. 

     

    Join us on July 26th at Misconduct Tavern to learn more about the current leaders' vision for the chapter, share your ideas for the chapter and find out if being a Chapter Leader is for you! This event is free for EPIP Members and $10 for non Members. Food and alcoholic drinks will be provided. Please RSVP for the event so that we can plan for seating. 

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Private Home in El Sereno in Los Angeles, CA

    EPIP LA- Beyond City Limits

    Please join EPIP Los Angeles for a backyard film screening of the award-winning documentary Raising Bertie. The film is an intimate six year portrait of three African American boys growing into adulthood in rural North Carolina, exploring complex relationships between generational poverty, educational inequity, and race. 

    Rural minorities like the youth in Bertie represent some of the nation’s most vulnerable and least visible individuals, existing at that critical juncture of rural disenfranchisement and the achievement gap for young people of color. Too often the focus in philanthropy and social change movements are primarily on the needs of urban and non-rural youth, largely ignoring this vital segment of America. We will go beyond the city limits of Los Angeles during the 96-minute runtime of the film focusing on this population that so rarely gets a spotlight.

    Agenda
    7:30 pm - Mingle, food and drink
    8:10 pm - Film screening

    Food and drinks will be provided. Parking directions and details are provided with RSVP.

    If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Monge Coria at losangeles@epip.org.

    Webinar: Catalytic Capital: Using Guarantees to Unlock Private

    Foundations are uniquely positioned to play a catalytic role in expanding access to finance for organizations that further their missions. They can do this by investing directly in projects and organizations, or by providing financial guarantees that help those organizations gain access to financial from other investors or lenders. If you are a foundation professional or want to become one, your expertise in the social sector offers greater insight into the business models of your grantees, and positions you to leverage this knowledge—alongside your foundation’s financial resources—to bring mainstream financiers into the space.
     
    Guarantees have several attractive features for foundations. They:
    may have greater impact than a direct one-time loan or investment, as they can open up new sources of financing and build the credit-worthiness of grantees.
    may not necessarily require an upfront outlay of funds, meaning those resources can do “double duty” by also being invested elsewhere and earning a financial return.

    Learn more about what it takes to provide and structure guarantees. Join this webinar to hear the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) present findings and recommendations from recently published research on the use of guarantees in community investing in the U.S. The GIIN will be joined by Tracy Kartye of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a foundation professional with experience using guarantees, who will shed light on the tool through a case example. The speakers will then field questions from the audience.
     
    Participants who are unfamiliar with impact investing are encouraged to listen to our previous webinar on this topic, Investment 101 and Transformative Finance.  .
