Upcoming Events

  • Event Update: PPP Loan Forgiveness Q&A Forum Rescheduled

    • Date:
      June 02, 2020
      Time:
      3:00 pm - 3:30 pm
      Location:
      Zoom

    This session was scheduled for May 21, but now it will be held on June 2 from 3:00-4:30 pm. When we first scheduled this session, we chose the date with the hope that the SBA would issue regulations and guidance last Friday.  While the SBA did release the loan forgiveness application, they have stated that the regulations are still forthcoming.  Since the loan forgiveness is not as time-sensitive as the loan application itself (funds aren't running out), we've decided the session will be most valuable if we postpone it.

    We regret to inform you that as a result of the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Social Innovation Forum and Philanthropy Massachusetts have decided to postpone the event "Moving Towards Social Justice Philanthropy: One Family Foundation's Journey, Challenges, and Lessons" that had been scheduled for April 7.  

    We were delighted to have had such strong interest in this topic from our community. Given that this event is intended to be an intimate and honest dialogue, we will be working with our guest speakers on rescheduling for a later date rather than trying to do the event virtually. We look forward to being in touch with more information once we have it and hope that you will be able to join us.

    Warmly,
    Carolyn
