Thought provoking read: Lessons from our National Park System for Baltimore, Ferguson

For 20 years that we've been traipsing through the national parks, I looked forward to the day when we'd encounter black and brown Americans in such numbers among the visitors that their presence on the trail in Grand Canyon would be unremarkable. Their faces would be radiant with joy as we met among the giant sequoias in Giant Grove, Sequoia National Park. They'd move easily among the other guests at Yellowstone Lodge after a day watching bison and grizzlies in the park. I'd run into…

Nonprofit Board Host not home

If nonprofit boards are the surrogate owners of a nonprofit representing the public/taxpayer's interests, it stands to reason that good governance would mean that the board would sit ever ready to listen and hear the needs, wants and interests of the many stakeholders/constituents of what the nonprofit has to offer. If a board accepts this concept it then must also accept and value the concept of community engagement.

Maurice A. Jones and Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI) co-authored a blog for The Hill, making a strong case for how Opportunity Zones can attract unprecedented capital to underinvested places—if the necessary oversight and guiderails are in place.

This week, the New York Times spotlights LISC NYC’s Creative Economy Fund and the wide-reaching benefits of impact investing in creative industries. The LISC fund fuels loans to build and preserve work spaces for artisans and entrepreneurs who would otherwise be edged out of the market by high New York City real estate costs. “We’re trying to create a new channel of investment capital,” says Sam Marks, executive director of LISC NYC. “This is about benefits for low- and moderate-income people.”
