NEIII is thrilled to partner with CapShift in hosting a conversation on Tuesday, June 25th at 6pm on activating Donor Advised Funds for Impact Investing!

RSVP today!

As Tim Freundlich from ImpactAssets notes: “DAFs are a great source of flexible, patient, and even non-commercial capital, and can play a critical role in helping innovative, early-stage companies move through their growth.” That said, we are still very much in the early days of catalyzing this capital for impact.

Please join us on Tuesday, June 25th for what we hope will be an engaging conversation with several local leaders of the DAF “ecosystem” here in Boston – including:

* Sarah Gelfand, Vice President, Social Impact Programs, Fidelity Charitable
* Adam Rein, Co-Founder, CapShift
* Ellen Remmer, Senior Partner at The Philanthropic Initiative; Champion, Invest for Better; President, The Remmer Family Foundation
* Deborah Frieze, Founder and President, Boston Impact Initiative
* Tory Dietel Hopps, Managing Partner, Dietel & Partners
and colleagues from Social Finance as well

RSVP today!
