Welcome All! Some notes

Before anything, a couple of notes on the GNH Community site as it stands now:



1. It is more or less a trial site. There is filler content and fictional non-profits populating it to show how it would look like. We will take them down when needed, and there are filters to avoid other jokers.

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.
