Grantmakers Welcome!

Please join Venable LLP and the Forum for this important webinar.

Across the country, large cities are grappling with the challenges of increasing economic disparity and urban decline.  Alongside the efforts of state and local governments, private foundations and grantmakers can play a leading role in fostering economic revitalization and creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs and visionaries who see a brighter future for our cities.  Please join Venable LLP and The Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers for an analysis and discussion of program-related investments and similar strategies to make a meaningful impact on the economic landscape.  Our panel will address both legal and practical considerations for foundations, including case studies, and lead a conversation on current priority areas for some of the cities at the forefront of these efforts.
