    12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

There is no dearth of community issues in which to invest, ranging from housing to childcare to social enterprises to small businesses. While these investment opportunities involve a greater level of investigation, the per investment dollar impact could be 10+ fold. The panel will talk about what it means to create an investment strategy that allows foundation boards of directors to ferret out and invest in innovative investment opportunities like the Community Investment Trust.

Panelists include:

Wisconsin Impact Investing Collaborative member: Stephanie Schlecht, executive director, Schlecht Family Foundation

Guest panelists: Baya Bittar, portfolio manager, Madison Investment Advisors and John Haines, executive director, Community Investment Trust, a program of Mercy Corps

*Reference materials include this video that highlights a decade of work of the Community Investment Trust
