McConnell Foundation joins CalOZ
Alongside organizations such as the James Irvine Foundation, Central Valley Community Foundation, and California Forward, The McConnell Foundation has officially joined CalOZ. CalOZ is dedicated to maximizing the transformative potential of Opportunity Zones (OZs) in California.
In Spring of 2019, The McConnell Foundation hosted a meeting in Redding with local developers, investors, municipal leaders etc…we were surprised that 130+ people showed up, even in our rural-ish part of the state. Here are some highlights to recap the experience so far:
- Watch What Happened at “Opportunity Zones 101: A Primer for the North State (July 11, 2019)
- Webinar with OppSites- Official Opportunity Zones Partner with State of CA (June 17, 2019)
- Top Takeaways From Opportunity Zones 101 event (May 31, 2019)
- Agenda & Bios for Opportunity Zones 101 (May 22, 2019)
Downtown Redding has a designated Opportunity Zone, so it the financing mechanism of OZs is important to track closely.
