Community Capital Working Group

Overview

Community Capital Working Group

Community Capital operates outside of the boundaries of conventional finance to bring marginalized communities into the economic mainstream. Through responsive, adaptive, and innovative lending, education, business support, and technical assistance, Community Capital remakes and revitalizes economies, enabling traditionally excluded peoples to become stakeholders in the economy.

The Community Capital Working Group consists of sub-groups that focus on: CDFIs and Main Street Lending, Restorative Investing, Investor Crowdfunding, and Transforming Ownership for Social Equity. Each group operates with a JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) lens and addresses extractive investing and inequitable financing to BIPOC communities. To date, these groups have presented over eight educational events and conference sessions to inspire and equip members with the tools and insights needed to to act and mobilize money to communities.
