Impact Capital Forum’s mission is to advance the microfinance, impact, and social enterprise sectors by providing a platform for innovation, collaboration, and thought leadership. As a field-building platform, the Impact Capital Forum facilitates dialogue as well as action. Towards this purpose, for certain influential and fast-evolving impact themes, we will convene working groups, which emerge from Impact Capital Forum events. These working groups will serve as a forum to foster and deepen dialogue and share learnings through monthly meetings.
What are Opportunity Zones?
Opportunity Zones have emerged as a transformative economic development tool, providing a new incentive to place much-needed capital into distressed communities. Opportunity Zones also offer investors opportunities to defer and/or reduce their tax liabilities when committing capital within designated areas. A helpful guide to Opportunity Zone investing is here.
The second meeting of this working group will convene to clarify the Opportunity Zone Regulations and to facilitate opportunities for members and their organizations. Each working group convening will focus on a different Opportunity Zone aspect, such as tax considerations, structuring, public-private partnership, accounting, and impact considerations. The group is relevant to those investing in or supporting such investment in Opportunity Zones, including foundations, financial institutions, impact investing intermediaries, fund managers, investors, attorneys, advisors, and real estate developers.
