Confluence Philanthropy's 4th Annual Advisors Forum & Climate Solutions Summit
Alfredo Silva will be joining the "How to Maximize Impact from Investment and Philanthropic Dollars to Promote Democracy" panel during the Confluence Philanthropy Advisors Forum & Climate Summit on March 2, 2021. The three-day virtual conference will bring together a cross section of viewpoints from policy, finance, and philanthropy with the theme of Reset 2021.
This panel will discuss how donors and investors can invest in democracy and democratize their investments. Innovative, values-driven companies and organizations represent a big investment opportunity—promising steady returns and outsized impact. The list of new companies working to shift power and safeguard our institutions is ever expanding, these founders need capital to grow, and values-aligned investors have an important role to play. In parallel, novel investment and ownership structures are developing to expand the traditional shareholder base, and a new administration raises the potential for creating meaningful retail opportunities for values-driven investing. With our government in crisis and many of our fundamental values under attack, there has never been a more urgent time to invest in democracy.
