Foundations, donors and social investors are faced daily with the challenge of investing in charities without a clear understanding of their underlying financial models. Charities themselves find it difficult to match their needs to available financing sources. Join us at MaRS for a symposium for funders and investors on new thinking about funding models and financing mechanisms for charities, featuring speakers from Canada, the U.S. and the UK. This event is presented by Philanthropic Foundations Canada.
