Economics of Social Change: Workshop Series – Financing Social Change

February 26, 2020

In the new economy, social change efforts require financial foresight and creative financing solutions.

This workshop will explore the social finance landscape, including an overview of financing options, different business models, and how power dynamics and our personal views of money can impact social change work.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn about the spectrum of financing options for social change initiatives, including who the funders are and what they want.

  • Reflect on the trade-offs and power dynamics associated with different financing options.

  • Consider how to finance social change initiatives in your local community.

Facilitated by: Jordan Reiniger, Boyle Street Community Services

This event is part of a five-part Economics of Social Change workshop series to explore connections between the local economy, community development and social change. Each workshop is facilitated by local practitioners, introduces hands-on tools and features guest speakers who are working on the ground with community economic development and economic justice issues.

Sign up for the whole series (recommended) or individual workshops.
