How to get there


Place-based investing is about building communities that are healthy, diverse, and sustainable— communities backed by local economies comprised of place-based businesses and supported by people invested in this vision. Place-based investing is about building a new, more equitable economy, an economy that is resilient to climate change and conscious of the importance of ecological care and stewardship. Place-based investing supports, rather than exploits, people and resources. The goal is real prosperity for all.

Join us with moderator Kelly Ryan, President & CEO at Incourage Community Foundation, in conversation with noted thought leaders Michael Shuman and Don Shaffer to elucidate the underpinnings of place-based investing and share the ways in which funders can support communities through impact-investing and systems change. There will be ample opportunity for Q & A discussion.

Speakers to include:
  • Kelly Ryan, President & CEO, Incourage Community Foundation
  • Michael Shuman, Author
  • Don Shaffer, President & CEO, RSF Social Finance
