NY1 Covers LISC NYC’s Inclusive Creative Economy Fund

NY1’s news segment covers LISC NYC’s recent loan to La MaMa Experimental Theater Club, the storied theater that is committed to maintaining affordable space for cutting edge creative artists to show their work to diverse audiences. It also highlights LISC NYC and Upstart Co-Lab’s initiative to engage impact investors in funding these kinds of loans, from institutional capital providers like Deutsche Bank, MetLife, Altman Foundation and New York Community Trust, to high net worth individuals and donor advised funds. 

Special thanks to NY1’s Matt McClure and Roma Torre for covering this work, and for featuring interviews with Sam Marks (LISC NYC), Mary Fulham & Mia Yoo (La MaMa) and Laura Callanan (Upstart Co-Lab)!
