    Listening Post Communiqué #7 | Stephanie Lessans Geller and Lester M. Salamon with Nancy Hall. Summarizes the findings of the Listening Post roundtable on the Project’s 2006 Nonprofit Investment Capital Sounding. Nonprofits emphasized that they cannot access sufficient investment capital, and providers indicated that capital is available and financial instruments exist that can meet nonprofit needs. Thus, a major disconnect exists between these groups. Participants brainstormed ways to help bridge this gap, including education and the use of financial intermediaries and tax credits.
