As the COVID-19 pandemic takes its toll on our economic infrastructure, healthcare and education systems, funders are called upon to step up to the plate and ramp up their support of nonprofits holding our fragile ecosystem together. However, in the midst of significant market volatility, funders are also grappling with diminished investment returns that seemingly jeopardize their ability to make an impact.
In this webinar, Michael Crow and Huldah Robertson will lead a conversation that provides context around the recent market volatility, examines the factors that will impact an eventual recovery, and shares strategy for foundations looking to successfully navigate this chapter of their grantmaking. They will provide a deeper understanding of the concepts monopolizing our headlines today, answering questions including:
- What drove the dramatic fall and subsequent, robust recovery of financial markets?
- What can be expected for the economy and how will this impact foundation investments?
- How could this impact grantmaking and distribution decisions?
Though guided by a brief presentation, this webinar will provide a truly open forum during which participants can actively engage in Q&A, sharing their observations with the presenters and other attendees. Registrants are highly encouraged to ask questions in advance, and to arrive with any items they would like to discuss. Ultimately, participants will step away better prepared to respond to the evolving market environment, collaborate with their investment manager, and maintain or expand their grantmaking.
