Investments in COVID-19 Recovery and Public Health

Public health infrastructure underpins many important priorities — such as keeping the economy open and children in classrooms. California’s COVID-19 response confirmed that our health systems were ill-prepared for such a crisis, and public health officials know another crisis is not a matter of if, but when. Congress responded quickly to fund the initial pandemic response; however, long-term sustained funding is needed to create the public health infrastructure needed to protect against a number of growing threats.

Join us for a discussion of the current state of California’s public health infrastructure and the role impact investing can play to support and protect the long-term health of our communities. What are strategies to close financing gaps and direct additional dollars into investment opportunities in healthcare, prioritizing people who experience disproportionate access to healthcare (Black, Indigenous and people of color, older adults, people living with disabilities, and LGBTQ community members)? If you’re interested in helping to pave the way for a recovery that is inclusive and sustainable, this session is for you.

About This Series

This session is the second in a four-part Philanthropy California learning series for institutional and individual impact investors across California, sponsored by and partnering with RBC Global Asset Management. Additionally, the Philanthropy California Investment Collaborative is a statewide, place-based impact investing initiative that aims to bring together foundations, public funds, individual investors, and, eventually, corporations to align their existing investment portfolios with grants and loans that support affordable housing, healthcare, small business, and environmental justice in targeted communities.

Target Audience

This webinar is for members of Catalyst, NCG, and SCG; it is also open to eligible non-members: family offices, private investors, foundations, institutional investors who are interested in learning about investments into enterprises and strategies that aim to generate financial returns alongside positive social and environmental impact.
