With the passage of last year’s tax code overhaul, Congress created Opportunity Zones—economically-distressed communities where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment. While there is much anticipation for how these Opportunity Zones will be used to create growth and economic investments in areas of the country where it is desperately needed, there are still many questions about how the process will work. What do Opportunity Zones mean for foundations and philanthropy? What can foundations be doing now to mobilize in anticipation of forthcoming IRS regulations and guidance around Opportunity Zones? This webinar will explore those questions as well as take a look at the potential for foundations to be players on both the investments side of the Zones and the social impact side.
