We will host a breakfast panel featuring contributors and insights from this comprehensive report that lifts up the ways impact investing can advance social and economic mobility for America's families.

Over the past year, Ascend at the Aspen Institute and the Program on Philanthropy and Social Innovation (PSI) have collaborated to document lessons learned from the impact/mission-driven investment field and the developing strategies and tools to apply market-based solutions toward efforts that can create economic security and promote educational success, as well as improve the health and well-being of low-income families across the U.S.

This event will highlight:

1) Case studies – The innovative deals and lessons learned from organizations such as Kresge Foundation, Bank of America, and Acelero Learning.

2) Essays – Insights and principles from essays written by leaders in the field, including Clara Miller, Audrey Choi, and Jim Bildner.

3) Survey Results Analysis – A synopsis of trends in social investment and activity of leading foundations, philanthropists, and investors across the United States.
