Census 2020: Why and How It Matters for Impact Investing [Webinar]

Host Organization: Philanthropy New York and Mission Investors Exchange


How do impact investors and policymakers use and rely on census data? And what are the consequences for impact investors if the census fails to include all our communities?

Join our partners, Mission Investors Exchange, for a 90-minute webinar exploring why and how foundations and other impact investors are mobilizing to get out the count for the 2020 Census.


  • How census data is used in impact investing, policy and much more
  • The risks of inaccurate data and why policymakers and others are so alarmed about the potential for an under-count in 2020
  • The risks for vulnerable populations, including  households with young children, mixed-status families, immigrants, refugees, native communities on tribal lands, people in the rural south and other under-counted groups
  • How you can take action, including how philanthropy is using its resources to mobilize capital right now to fill funding gaps and support organizations on the ground reaching hard-to-count populations
