Place-based Impact Investing – What is it and how does it help communities?

Monica Miller July 13, 2022

One of the most impactful ways of investing in a localized community is by taking a holistic view of what a community wants and needs.  By tapping into already trusted local community leaders, a plan of investing can begin to take shape.  Each place-based project and location has different community needs and financial structuring needs.  This is a type of investing that is poised to grow over the next decade.  Learn about various projects being shaped around the country.
