The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and Social Innovation St. Louis co-sponsored a conference on April 18, 2017, on social purpose real estate (SPRE). More than 100 community leaders—from banking, philanthropy, nonprofit administration, government, academia and community development—gathered at the St. Louis Fed. Attendees listened to national thought leaders, studied case examples and reviewed emerging landscape projects in the St. Louis region. Principles to guide SPRE were identified through facilitated small-group discussions.

Included here are the conference agenda; videos from the conference; a conference photo gallery; and Nonprofit Co-location and Opportunities for Community Development Financial Institutions, a white paper produced by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
