Practice is so important! It lifts up the fact that we need to build in the new habits that allow us to shift away from harmful practices, towards practices centered on healing. Also important to embrace experimentation - understanding that we will all need to keep learning, innovating and interacting as we try to create more just and equitable systems
Susan Pritzker
01:41:02
Hi. Regan’s mom, Susan, here. Thanks for the shout out, Regan.Happy to talk more to anyone on the call about our direct political work.It’s really exciting!

Hey Susan! It would be amazing to hear about the direct political work!

Nancy Latham
01:43:09
Got it, thank you!
Marnie Thompson
01:43:47
Regan used the term “concessionary investments. This is a fairly common term in the impact investing world, where it kind of means the investor agrees to give up some portion of “normal” or “expected” returns (that is, takes a lower rate of return) than they could get in the speculative markets, in the name of accomplishing some kind of social or environmental good with the investment. I personally find this term - concessionary investment - problematic, because it presupposes there is some kind of “right” of investors to take a certain level of return. In fact the question of who should gain the benefit of any wealth that’s generated by an productive investment is one that should be fully interrogated.

Thank you, Marnie! I totally agree and appreciate the flag to keep working on breaking unhelpful linguistic habits!
Rajiv Khanna
01:46:07
Thanks for the explanation, Marnie, of “concessionary” returns. Such a framing also privileges financial returns above all other returns — cultural, social, political, environmental, and so much more. We must think more in terms of an ecosystem of returns on investments
Nwamaka Agbo (she/her/hers)
01:46:09
Thanks for this, Marnie. As we try to create new systems, we also need to find the right language that reflects our values and intent. Is there another word that you use to capture the sentiment of concessionary?
Nwamaka Agbo (she/her/hers)
01:47:21
Yes, Buen Vivir Fund uses the term aportes (pay it forward) rather than financial returns to the investor
Alex Haber
01:47:41
Nwamaka, when I’ve talked about this in the past, I’ve talked about “right-sized returns” based on the particular context of the specific investment and community needs

Regan Pritzker (she/her)
01:50:31
The Olamina Fund is not yet open to other lenders, but we are working on it. It is stabilizing in response to COVID-19, as we are trying to support current borrowers. Lending directly to black-led CDFI’s like Hope Credit Union or to Indigenous loan fund Oweesta are other options. Seed Commons is a great option to support trans-local cooperative loan funds!
Susan Pritzker
01:51:10
Powerful and perfect words from Ed. Thank you.
Marnie Thompson
01:51:46
I like the notion of “right-sizing” returns. Then there is the question of who gets to decide how to right-size the rewards of productive labor.

Lynne Hoey
02:07:22
Agreed Alan - aligning our internal and external practices of justice is critical for shifting the system.
Marnie Thompson
02:08:57
Really appreciate Alan’s openness to sharing where Arch is still working!
Rajiv Khanna
02:09:57
thank you Alan. Our grassroots partners constantly remind us that as we work towards social transformation, how we can we as individuals not be transformed by this process?
Rajiv Khanna
02:13:20
Really appreciate the courage to share your family story, Regan.
Jennifer Near she/hers
02:15:03
Love the stories lift up how folks are transforming the work, and being transformed by the work, and moving from a place of integration, meaning working across multiple sets of resources, not being limited by one way or structure
Marnie Thompson
02:16:28
Regan - love your willingness to experiment and just do it!!
Regan Pritzker (she/her)
02:19:32
I encourage program folks and EDs at family foundations to not give up on family board members! Invite us to learning opportunities and help us learn. I also am available to talk to boards or board members if having a peer ally would be helpful.
Jennifer Near she/hers
02:20:47
Yes Regan! We will also share resources about learning cohorts at the end for program staff, executives, and trustees as one way to support how you are moving them alignment building work internallu
Regan Pritzker (she/her)
02:20:58
Padmini - I also recommend the Justice Funders trainings, like Maestra that bring board and executives together to strategize and learn.
Janelle Orsi
02:21:07
Loving this webinar, thanks all! A key need we’re seeing is for foundations to grant directly to non-501(c)(3) solutions, like cooperatives and mutual aid groups, which are backbones of community self-determination. I keep hearing that foundations are reluctant to do the extra due diligence and expenditure responsibility. What foundations are taking steps to grant directly to cooperatives and other non-(c)(3)s? What barriers need to be addressed? Thanks for any insights!
Stephanie Ellis-Smith
02:21:09
Appreciate your candor around decision-making, Cynthia. These are difficult choices but transparency is key.
Marnie Thompson
02:24:13
Janelle - F4DC has done some expenditure responsibility work to move money to coops and non-incorporated projects. It takes a very close relationship and that requires an investment of time and… I don’t know, the ability to be in close relationship. I’d be happy top tell you about the specifics offline if you ever want to talk.
Stephanie Gillis
02:24:41
YES! just love that you give through intermediaries - that's one of the things we're trying to get more high-capacity donors to do!
Cynthia Renfro (she/her)
02:24:45
Yes Marnie! Thank you for all the F4DC learning and sharing!
Regan Pritzker (she/her)
02:25:32
Janelle - Impact Assets can be a partner to support some kinds of non c-3 investment. But I think also just educating folks who have the capacity to remember that not all of their change-making work can happen inside of private foundation structures, so encouraging folks to just give money away, even if you are not getting the tax break.
Marnie Thompson
02:26:04
Regan is sooooo right about that!
Amy Mandel
02:27:55
Yes! I second and third what Regan, then Marnie wrote about just giving money away. Thanks for adding that to the conversation.

Rajiv Khanna
02:29:04
Stephanie — let’s talk about the role of intermediaries and HNWI giving.
Janelle Orsi
02:29:50
Thank you so much, Marnie! I'd love to talk to y'all about how you managed it with F4DC. I'll reach out, and maybe we can train other funders to do this.And thank you Regan. So grateful for the ways y'all are pushing conventional boundaries. Yes to people giving away money directly, since the legal/tax framework of foundations can be so confining. And only about 5% of people in the US can take the charitable deduction after the 2017 tax bill, so giving to cooperatives and to 501(c)(3)s has the same tax impact for people who take the standard deduction.
Regan Pritzker (she/her)
02:31:43
Standing on your shoulders, Tracy! Thank you for your early investments in making a better world. Onward!
