Past NMAG EventQuarterly Membership Meeting September 11, 2019

The focus for this meeting is on philanthropy’s role in community economic development, specifically investing in community wealth building and inclusive local economies.

Investors and foundations play integrating or catalyzing roles to advance economic development with strategies that run parallel to or support grant making. Philanthropic strategies can fill gaps that other organizations and agencies in the community or region are not addressing. To ensure that philanthropy is playing this value-added role requires identifying what others are doing and the outcomes they are seeking or achieving – thereby clarifying the gaps and leverage points in the system.

This luncheon will provide an opportunity for our members to learn about what others are doing in economic development philanthropy.
