Impact Investing Giving Circles
Harnessing the power and tradition of philanthropic giving circles and immigrant lending circles.
IFC has developed a model to educate would-be impact investors in a low risk, low barrier to entry environment: the Impact Investing Giving Circle (IIGC), structured as a donor-advised fund or field of interest fund.
Taking the same approach IFC has used for CO Impact Days, once the donations have been been made and donors received SDG investor education, we will provide education and technical assistance for the nonprofit and for-profit sectors. The next step will be inviting SDG social ventures to apply for the resources through a “Call for Deals.”

Support Social Ventures Led By and Benefiting Women
IFC could not be more thrilled to have our team join forces with the Women’s Foundation of Colorado and Wallace Global Fund for the Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle and National Women’s Impact Investing Landscape Scan.
This journey will increase participants’ confidence and competence while supporting the most inspiring social ventures led by and benefiting women. Furthermore, Impact Investing Giving Circles also provide a participatory research opportunity to map both the supply and demand of capital in a given geography, providing the foundation for additional activities to continue to move money for impact.
Ask yourself, do you want to learn how you can invest your personal or professional resources in social ventures led by or benefiting women? If yes, the Colorado Women’s Impact Investing Giving Circle is the right opportunity for you.
