Are Charities Ready for Social Finance? Investment Readiness in Canada’s Charitable Sector

On June 25, join our free webinar presented by Imagine Canada to learn more about social finance.

There is growing interest in social finance from government policymakers who see it as a tool for scaling innovative solutions to complex social and environmental challenges. For not-for-profits, social finance offers a new source of capital that could allow them to diversify their revenue streams and become more resilient in an increasingly precarious funding environment.
