OUR VISION

The aim of the Task Force and Opportunity Zones Catalyst Challenge is to spark a social impact movement that will highlight and catalyze community involvement and ignite much-needed cross-sector collaborations that place sustainable growth of distressed communities at the heart of all Opportunity Funds—making them a powerful force for good and driver of economic advancement across the country.

The Opportunity Zones Catalyst Challenge will implement the common set of guiding principles being announced today by the U.S. Impact Investing Alliance and the Beeck Center, along with a measurement framework, to provide Opportunity Funds with the tools to thoughtfully deploy capital into the areas that need it most. This national-scale challenge will seek a diverse set of project and applicant types to emphasize the many creative ways that positive community impact can be achieved.

In order for opportunity zones to equitably revitalize distressed communities, it is critical to highlight the players championing the intent of the legislation: social and economic impact. The Sorenson Impact Center and our founding partners are very excited to launch this important work.
— Jim Sorenson, Impact Investing Pioneer and President of the Sorenson Impact Foundation
Early movers and leaders can define the future of the Opportunity Zones market. By honoring these leaders, we hope to send a signal to the market about the importance of a commitment to transparency and a dedication to revitalizing distressed communities.
— Fran Seegull, Executive Director of the U.S. Impact Investing Alliance
