Post-Conference Seminar: Israel as a Model for Social Investing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Israel’s economic growth has been inadequate and shared unequally. Charitable giving has declined from past years. The new government faces growing deficits and diminished resources. Many nonprofit organizations struggle to effectively serve their communities, and many businesses with strong evidence-based outcomes that could accelerate Israel’s lagging growth rate suffer from investment declines affecting Israeli exports. Available sources of funding aren’t adequate to address these issues—but Israel offers an extraordinary laboratory to create a novel, flexible, and efficient system of activating capital towards social impact targets. The launching of new impact investment platforms, programs, products and policies, coupled with Israel’s technological and social-innovation strengths, make this an exciting time for Jewish communities abroad to engage with leaders in Israel to make lasting impact. This half-day seminar brings together experts in the field to review the state of the art and opportunities to work together.
