    Webinar: Catalytic Capital: Using Guarantees to Unlock Private Capital for Impact


    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.  .
