The Invisible Hearth

What happens when capitalism and charity intersect? The Invisible Heart tracks the birth of one of the fastest growing social innovations in modern history: social impact bonds. An unorthodox marriage between government services and private-sector investments, this burgeoning financial model promises to solve society’s most complex problems from crime to homelessness—but is it delivering? Set in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K, this compelling documentary follows the unlikely people banding together to battle social inequality.

Join KWCF at Princess Cinemas for a special screening & panel discussion, doors open at 6:10pm.

The post-film Q & A will be moderated by our President & CEO Elizabeth Heald and feature panelists:

Tim Jackson - President & CEO, SHAD Network

Adam Jagelewski - Director, MaRS Centre for Impact Investment

Third panelist to be announced.

New Volunteer Orientation Meeting

For new volunteers joining our committee. This is a one-time meeting that goes over high level KWCF information, how to navigate our software programs, and a general overview on how to evaluate an application.

Dinner will be provided.

When on King Street looking at City Hall, to the left is a Shopper’s Drug Mart. Beside that is a Subway. Directly beside that is a set of sliding doors where you need to push the accessibility button to open. We are located at the top of the stairs.
