Detroit’s revitalization: Small business development with investments in growth industries
Panelists discuss the viewpoint that cities need to invest in small, locally-serving businesses, while also needing to maintain innovative growth industries, particularly in trade-focused sectors with significant multiplier effects. Janis Bowdler, head of small business and community development for global philanthropy at JPMorgan Chase, expands on the need for cities to take a strategic approach towards both and describes what this means for economic developers “focused on landing the next big fish.” https://www.brookings.edu/events/placing-big-bets-on-small-business/ On May 17, the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings held an event that aimed to unpack the updated findings from the Detroit Reinvestment Index, a comprehensive report created and issued by The Kresge Foundation that measures Detroit’s comeback from its history-making bankruptcy in 2014.

reRoute: Promoting University Community Investment through Student Action and Community Partnerships
As permanent place-based "anchor" institutions, colleges and universities are well positioned to be critical drivers of development. In the area of investments, however, institutions could be doing much more to directly support working people, small businesses, and sustainable community economic development. In June 2012, the Responsible Endowments Coalition and the Democracy Collaborative launched a research project to explore student involvement in university-led community investment. In our study, we found that when students, faculty, community organizations, and college administrations come together, it is more likely that a long-term community investment will occur with the community's needs prioritized. In this workshop, we hope to discuss the results of our research and work with participants to answer the question: how can students and community members work together towards sustainable investments for their communities? This workshop will be interactive and include a facilitated discussion at its close. Annie McShiras is the development director of the Responsible Endowments Coalition Dan Apfel is the executive director of the Responsible Endowments Coaltion Sarah McKinley is a research associate with The Democracy Collaborative

Alan Greenspan Praises Business Leaders: Community Investment (1995)
By investing directly in an institution, rather than purchasing stock, an investor is able to create a greater social impact: Money spent purchasing stock accrues to the stock's previous owner and may not generate social good, while money invested in a community institution is put to work. For example, money invested in a Community Development Financial Institution may be used by that institution to alleviate poverty or inequality, spread access to capital to under-served communities, support economic development or green business, or create other social good. In 1984, Trillium Asset Management's founder, Joan Bavaria, invited Chuck Matthei of the Institute for Community Economics (ICE), an organization that helps communities create and sustain land trusts, to a meeting of US SIF (formerly the Social Investment Forum). It is likely that this was the first time a nonprofit organization with a loan fund would meet directly with SRI managers. Trillium clients began investing in ICE later that year. The modern era of socially responsible investing evolved during the political climate of the 1960s. During this time, socially concerned investors increasingly sought to address equality for women, civil rights, and labor issues. Economic development projects started or managed by Dr. Martin Luther King, like the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Operation Breadbasket Project in Chicago, established the beginning model for socially responsible investing efforts. King combined ongoing dialog with boycotts and direct action targeting specific corporations. Concerns about the Vietnam War were incorporated by some social investors.[5][6] Many people living during the era remember a picture in June 1972 of a naked nine year-old girl, Phan Thị Kim Phúc, running towards a photographer screaming, her back burning from the napalm dropped on her village. That photograph channeled outrage against Dow Chemical,[7] the manufacturer of napalm, and prompted protests across the country against Dow Chemical and other companies profiting from the Vietnam War. During the 1950s and 1960s, trade unions deployed multi-employer pension fund monies for targeted investments. For example, the United Mine Workers fund invested in medical facilities, and the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union (ILGWU) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) financed union-built housing projects.[8] Labor unions also sought to leverage pension stocks for shareholder activism on proxy fights and shareholder resolutions. In 1978, SRI efforts by pension funds was spurred by The North will Rise Again: Pensions, Politics, and Power in the 1980s and the subsequent organizing efforts of authors Jeremy Rifkin and Randy Barber. By 1980, presidential candidates Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and Jerry Brown advocated some type of social orientation for pension investments.[9] SRI had an important role in ending the apartheid government in South Africa. International opposition to apartheid strengthened after the 1960 Sharpeville massacre. In 1971, Reverend Leon Sullivan (at the time a board member for General Motors) drafted a code of conduct for practicing business in South Africa which became known as the Sullivan Principles. However, reports documenting the application of the Sullivan Principles said that US companies were not trying to lessen discrimination in South Africa. Due to these reports and mounting political pressure, cities, states, colleges, faith-based groups and pension funds throughout the US began divesting from companies operating in South Africa. In 1976, the United Nations imposed a mandatory arms embargo against South Africa. From the 1970s to the early 1990s, large institutions avoided investment in South Africa under apartheid. The subsequent negative flow of investment eventually forced a group of businesses, representing 75% of South African employers, to draft a charter calling for an end to apartheid. While the SRI efforts alone did not bring an end to apartheid, it did focus persuasive international pressure on the South African business community. Trillium Asset Management was founded in 1982 by Joan Bavaria and is the oldest independent investment advisor devoted exclusively to sustainable and responsible investing (SRI) in the United States. Originally named Franklin Research & Development, the company was started to provide a space for investors to match their money with their values. In 1984, Bavaria also co-founded The Social Investment Forum, now known as the US SIF – The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment, one of the first organizations serving social investors. The mid and late 1990s saw the rise of SRI’s focus on a diverse range of other issues, including tobacco stocks, mutual fund proxy disclosure, and other diverse focuses. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socially_responsible_investing

Buncombe News Update - Invest Health  Project Showcase
Recently, Invest Health Asheville held their Project Showcase, Brick & Mortar. The event took place at the Arthur R. Edington Education & Career Center and celebrated a major milestone in a new fundraising process. Invest Health is a new initiative that brings together diverse leaders from mid-sized U.S. cities across the nation to develop new strategies for increasing and leveraging private and public investments to accelerate improvements in neighborhoods facing the biggest barriers to better health. The program is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Reinvestment Fund. In 2016 Asheville was selected from more than 170 communities across the country to take part in this initiative. Cities were asked to form five member teams including representatives from the public sector, community development and an academic or health related anchor institution. The Invest Health Asheville Home Team consisted of Deborah Calhoun, Director of Community Partnerships, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County; Heather Dillashaw, Community Development Manager, Department of Community and Economic Development, City of Asheville; Jane Hatley, WNC Regional Director, Self-Help Credit Union; Rebecca Brothers, Buncombe County Government-Community Engagement; and Stacey Millett, Executive Director for Community Engagement, UNC-Asheville-North Carolina Center for Health and Wellness. “We recognized early in the process that we were not enough and that we wanted to authentically engage in the community that we serve,” said Brothers. They opened up the proposal process to the community and representatives from over 35 organizations have been meeting for the past year. Those organizations include ABIPA, Asheville City Schools, Asheville Housing Authority, Bountiful Cities, Buncombe County Government, Buncombe County Health and Human Services, CAYLA (City of Asheville Youth Leadership Academy) - Interns, City of Asheville – Community Development, Community Action Opportunities, Community Center Health Home – BCBS Foundation, Community Members from Lee Walker & Southside, Eagle Market Street Development Corporation, French Broad Food Coop, Green Opportunities, Habitat for Humanity, MAHEC – Health Based Organization, Mountain Bizworks, Self-Help Credit Union – CDFI, SPARC Foundation, Tepeyac Consulting, UNC-Asheville – Anchor Institution and United Way. “We wanted the community to be able to have the power to make decisions about what the community needs,” said Marisol Jimenez of Tepeyac Consulting. Eight project proposals were selected from local communities and the top three pitched their proposals at the Brick & Mortar Event with artwork commissioned by local artist Jenny Pickens. A selection committee made up of community volunteers chose Emma Community Park’s proposal to be presented by the Home Team at a national Invest Health Symposium in December, 2017. All eight projects will be represented there as well in the hopes of building funding momentum.
