The Utah Impact Initiative is part of a multi-state Initiative designed to elevate and accelerate impact investing by facilitating education, networking, collaboration, and partnerships among investors, entrepreneurs, and practitioners.
Conceived by impact investing thought leaders with local, regional, and national reputations, this initiative is intended to engage investors and philanthropists in multiple states and drive new capital into Utah communities as well as outside Utah by:
Providing education and awareness about impact investing to investors, philanthropists and their advisors.
- Connecting worthy ventures to opportunities, resources, and talent
Impact investors put wealth to work in education, urban revitalization, housing, climate resilience, health and job creation. The Utah Impact Initiative will give focused investors the confidence and tools to take action in new, powerful ways.
- Catalyze placement of $50 million in investment and philanthropic capital into ventures that are changing the world for the better
- Lead a broad movement toward philanthropic impact investing, with Utah paving the way for other communities to follow
Individuals and foundations across the state are looking to get more out of their investments. To help investors learn about the benefits of impact investing, make connections, and share best practices, we'll be hosing networking events throughout 2016 -- and we're always available for one-on-one conversations. Join us, and help us create the infrastructure of impact investing in Utah!
