In January, the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program published a paper outlining the housing affordability and stability crisis that approximately 100 million Americans faced. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Americans are now facing the most acute jobs crisis since the Great Depression. As a result, millions of us are suddenly unable to make rent or mortgage payments. There is hope. Policymakers, businesses, and non-profits are prioritizing this issue like never before — and we can implement solutions that will put our communities on a path build a stronger system of affordable, high-quality housing across the country.

Like most aspects of society, impact investing and philanthropy have been profoundly unsettled by the coronavirus pandemic, requiring urgent responses and reevaluations of missions and priorities.
Since the massive economic upheaval caused by Covid-19 is likely to last well into 2021 if not longer, what does this mean for impact investors and philanthropists? What are their right roles and how are they changing to fill those roles? Where can mission-driven investments and philanthropic funding be most helpful? How can both philanthropy and impact investing respond to the disorder created by the virus by leveraging truly transformative solutions that will create a more sustainable and equitable world? How can they best support impact entrepreneurs in this time?
In this can’t-miss virtual fireside chat addressing these and other urgent questions, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker welcomes impact investing and philanthropy luminary Antony Bugg-Levine, who directed the Rockefeller Foundation’s pioneering development of the impact investing space, who co-wrote the first book on impact investing, and who currently is channeling tens of millions of philanthropic and impact investment dollars to pandemic-impacted organizations through his leadership of the Nonprofit Finance Fund.
