The Nonprofit Capital Market:
Investment Notes and other Socially Responsible Investment Mechanisms for Accessing Investor Capital

April 19

9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Nonprofit organizations have been seeking new sources of capital beyond the traditional donations by individuals and philanthropies. One important emerging source of funding is access to investor capital through notes and other financial instruments, often through Socially Responsible Investor funds as financial intermediaries. This conference examines trends in nonprofits seeking to access private investor capital, both in the United States and in Europe, through issuances of investment notes. It discusses the economics of such capital raising and what kinds of nonprofits have the best conditions to benefit from it, as well as the mechanics of issuance, sale, and marketing, from the business, securities law, and tax law points of view.
