Opportunity Virginia Launch & Summit

  • Darden School of Business - University of Virginia 100 Darden Boulevard Charlottesville, VA, 22901 United States (map)

Join Opportunity Virginia's official launch of the Commonwealth's Opportunity Zones initiative at the University of Virginia.

The conference will be held on October 22nd at the Darden School, where the Commonwealth of Virginia and LOCUS Impact Investments will announce Opportunity Virginia, a statewide Opportunity Zone initiative.

Background: Last year, the legislation created 8,700 Opportunity Zones across the country, including in Charlottesville and across Virginia. The Opportunity Zone legislation has given investors a significant tax benefit for investing in economically distressed areas, but more importantly, has ignited a re-thinking of community development, private investment, and philanthropy across the country in an attempt to better build community wealth.
