At this convening, First Nations Oweesta Corporation and partners will be working with Native CDFIs to build organizational capacity to access capital (June 12 & 13). We are also holding a special, closed door session for potential funders and investors June 13 (from 2-5pm), where we can organize strategic discussions around focusing capital in Native communities and Native CDFIs. June 14th, we will be hosting a full networking day with Native CDFIs, funders, and investors to learn more about opportunities to bring more capital to Native communities and facilitate a large group networking session.  

If you are a funder or investor interested in working more closely with, funding, or investing in Native CDFIs and communities, we urge you to join us June 13th and 14th in Pacific Grove, CA.

*If you are only able to attend on one of the days listed, we welcome you to attend either day that works for your schedule. We also invite you to arrive earlier on June 13th if you are interested in our capacity building efforts for accessing capital in Native communities on behalf of the Native CDFI industry (please email Heather Rademacher Taylor at heather@oweesta.org if you are interested in doing so).
