Community Bonds for Community Projects

Price: General admission (includes DIY guidebook) $75, CSI members pay $55

Two years ago, we had the outlandish idea that we could raise $2 million toward the purchase and renovation of a 36,000 square foot building, jam pack that space with world-changing people and projects, all while providing our investors with a triple bottom line return – in the span of a whirlwind 8 months. Well, we did it! And now we want to help others do the same.

Join Tonya Surman, Executive Director of the Centre for Social Innovation, for this half-day overview of what we did, how we did it, and how you can too. Gain insight into your organization’s financing challenges, determine whether community bonds are the right fit for you, learn how to launch your own community bond offering, and how to turn your supporters into investors.

All attendees will receive a copy of the Do-It-Yourself Guide to Community Bonds and gain admission to a new community of practice for social entrepreneurs.
