Our community of philanthropy and CMF Impact Investing Expert in Residence Jennifer Oertel have developed best practices, policy, sample tools and materials, case studies and convenings on the role that impact investing can play in helping to build thriving, equitable communities. Our team also leads the Michigan Impact Investing Hub, a resource for all those engaged in impact investing in our state to connect and collaborate.
Impact Investing Commitee
Essential to the growth of this practice across the state is the board-led Impact Investing Committee. The committee is comprised of experienced CMF leaders who guide the design and implementation of CMF’s services and supports around impact investing education, resource development, convenings, partnerships and collaboration.
