in cities and regions to address
systemic economic inequities
Forward Impact is a for-benefit advisory firm and investment fund working with philanthropist, impact investors, and policy-makers striving to invest in place-based strategies to address systemic economic inequities.
Our mission is to improve systemic economic inequities in communities and create generational wealth building opportunities for currently under-connected individuals and families.
WHAT IS FORWARD IMPACT?
Forward Impact was launched to help deploy capital more effectively in cities and regions to address systemic economic inequities. Too often, public and private investment focused on place-based change is siloed, limited in its scope, and under-leveraged. Forward Impact is achieved when capital is focused on a systemic, integrated approach that focuses on rigorous and measurable multi-generational outcomes. By fostering opportunities for connection and collaboration, Forward Impact creates new opportunities for private investors and public capital to work together to sustain this systems-change work.
Forward Impact is where every dollar spent on addressing systemic inequities advances immediate & long-term social and economic returns
WHO DO WE WORK WITH?
Forward Impact works with policymakers, philanthropists, and private investors striving to:
Deploy capital into measurable place-based solutions
Connect with other funders for learning & collaboration
Engage with similarly aligned policy makers, partners, and investors
Amplify scale by leveraging follow on public and private capital
HOW DOES THE FIRM AND FUND WORK TOGETHER?
Through our national consulting work, we regularly see impact investment models and connect with national investors interested in expanding their impact. To bring these models to our home community, we are launching an impact investment fund in the Carolinas focused on investing in real estate that can have catalytic economic and community impact.
