How Tri-Sector Collaboration Is Critical in Creating COVID-19 Response Funds

By Tara Schoenborn

Despite all the challenges that COVID-19 has brought, Beth Bafford, Vice President of Syndications and Strategy at Calvert Impact Capital, Duke MBA class of 2012 and CASE i3 Advisory Council member, is hopeful about one thing: we can all do so much more when we work together.

“The old saying rings true: ‘When you want to walk fast, walk alone. When you want to walk far, walk together,’” said Bafford when talking about the extensive collaboration efforts of organizations within a new fund she is working on, the Community Recovery Vehicle.
