SEA Webinar: Financing for Community and Economic Development
About This Event

At SEA, our vision is for social enterprise to reach its potential as a force for more effective and sustainable social impact. Often times, this impact is most deeply felt at the local level, which is why social enterprise can play a crucial role in supporting community and economic development.

Do you have a social enterprise in need of funding that you believe is bettering the community you live in? Are you interested in learning more about how Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and Microlending organizations are contributing to community-supporting social enterprises?Then tune in to the sixth and final webinar in SEA’s Social Finance Webinar Series. Leaders from Opportunity Fund, MACED and the United Virginia Education Fund, will tell you more about their investment work in the community development space, as well as provide real case studies where their funding allowed social enterprises to make a real difference in their communities.


Featured Speakers and Moderator:

Iosefa Alofaituli – Regional Director at Opportunity Fund

Paul Wright – Vice President, Enterprise Development at Mountain Association for Community Economic Development

Rob Martin – Director, United Virginia Community Fund.
