Diverse Managers Investor Club

Activating Full Spectrum Capital for diverse managers.

What makes it so difficult for large asset owners who are deeply committed to justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion to align the majority of their assets with their values?

In partnership with Rural Community Assistance Corporation (RCAC), Impact Finance Center is working to build the infrastructure to achieve this goal. The infrastructure includes Investor Accelerators (Impact Investing Giving Circles) and Investor Clubs that act as a marketplace to directly connect investors with the projects they care about.

Impact Finance Center and RCAC will be hosting quarterly California Sustainable Forestry Investor Clubs, with the goal of growing the Club to 250 investors (e.g., individuals, private foundations, community foundations, endowments, family offices, corporations, banks, and life insurance companies) by 2025.
