INVESTING IMPACT FOCUSED CAPITAL
IN MISSION MINDED PROJECTS

NEED CAPITAL TO GROW?
WANT TO INVEST IN IMPACT?

OUR PURPOSE

CFE believes that social and racial equity are rooted in economic equity. Thus, our Nonprofit Loan Fund represents an investment opportunity for institutional funders, individual impact philanthropists, and grant makers in pursuit of economic equity and opportunity for all people in our region. Via investments in impact notes that directly help to grow our mission-focused lending, or via contributions to our Loan Fund infrastructure, you help us provide patient, flexible capital and complementary financial services to underserved individuals, nonprofit organizations, and small businesses/entrepreneurs. Through these efforts, we support affordable housing, job growth, schools, health centers, arts and other organizations – all of which contribute to improved lives and livelihoods across our communities. So, the question may be not what to do with your money, but what do you want your money to do? If you wish to make an impact and make a difference, we are here to help.
