Investment Connection is an opportunity to showcase new and existing community and economic development proposals that are CRA eligible to potential funders – 9/27- Billings
September 27 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm
Dear Community Partner,
I would like to invite you to submit a proposal for Investment Connection Billings on September 27 in Billings, Montana (location to be announced). Investment Connection is an opportunity to showcase new and existing community and economic development proposals that are CRA eligible to potential funders. If you have a proposal addressing the needs of low- and moderate-income populations in Montana, I hope you will take this opportunity and submit it for consideration. The deadline for submitting proposals is August 20, 2019. Please see attachment for further explanation of what counts as community development under the CRA.
Eight proposals will be selected for an opportunity to present at the Investment Connection Billings event on September 27 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (organizations will be notified of their acceptance status on September 17). During the event, each selected organization will have ten minutes to share information about its specific proposal via a PowerPoint presentation, followed by five minutes of Q&A with potential investors. This will be an exciting opportunity to share information about your organization, discuss your community and economic development ideas, and connect with funders who could help make them a reality.
We are accepting completed proposals, including reviewed or audited financials, now through the close of business on August 20, 2019. Please note: All proposals will be reviewed, and of those that are deemed potentially CRA-eligible, eight proposals will be randomly selected to be presented at the event. Priority for presentation will be given to organizations requesting a loan or combination of a loan and investment / grant. You can submit a proposal via the Investment Connection portal. If you have any questions about the proposal process or Investment Connection Billings, feel free to contact me at 612-204-5064 or by replying to this message.
I hope you will consider submitting a proposal for this unique opportunity.
