Born out of the civil rights movement, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) invest in transformative change for communities every day. For individuals and families in communities across the country that have seen little investment—and often structural disinvestment—equity requires that they have the same chance as everyone, the chance to access critical resources and create communities of opportunity.
For more than 35 years, Capital Impact Partners, a certified CDFI, has sought to advance social and economic justice by supporting projects and facilities that create access to a wide range of social services, from affordable housing to health care and education to healthy food. Those investments, in the forms of strategic financing and community-based programs, have helped millions of people access critical services that enabled them to thrive.
As income inequality, the racial wealth gap, wage stagnation and other obstacles that keep communities from succeeding persisted and grew in recent years, we knew that achieving the goals of the civil rights movement for our communities would take a village. The growing nature of the impact investing field offered an opportunity to allow like-minded, mission-driven individuals and organizations to join us in working with communities to break down the barriers to success.
Our Capital Impact Investment Notes, launched in 2017, give retail and institutional investors the chance to invest in expanding equity and racial, economic, and social justice for all. Our Notes are S&P rated, DTC-settled, and offered on a continuous basis through brokerage accounts in almost all U.S. states. To find out more about our Note, including Terms & Highlights, visit our website.
This includes financial advisers like Andy Loving who represents clients in 25 states. He saw the Capital Impact Investment Notes as an opportunity to earn a financial, as well as a social, return on his investments.
