Giving & Investing in Your Own Backyard
Bold Conversation with Bonny Meyer & Mark Reed
October 23, 12pm ET/9am PT

Most giving happens locally as we act on our commitment to our community, work to build a stronger local economy, develop civic pride, and teach the next generation about the importance of giving back. But how we give locally is expanding – we can make gifts, invest in social businesses, serve as community volunteers, mobilize other donors in-person and online, develop new communities and more. We hope you’ll join two of our amazing Bold Givers, Bonny Meyer and Mark Reed, for an intimate conversation about what it can mean to be a bold local leader and leverage your giving, investing and leadership to drive social change in your own community.

Through the Meyer Family Fund, Bonny supports empowerment programs for underserved teens and vulnerable adults in California's Napa and Anderson Valleys. Recognizing that safe, net-zero energy affordable housing can have a positive impact on the environment, economic and social resilience and health, she is building Thriving Communities urban and suburban ecovillages in Napa. Through the Contact Fund, Mark works at the intersection of philanthropy and investing and uses a “place-based’ investing philosophy to concentrate capital in under-served neighborhoods throughout New York City. Hear about these and other experiences they both have to share, and explore possibilities for your own local giving and investing.
