Community Governed Funds

AcceleratingCommunityGovernance

Whether it’s deploying lowinterest home loans with nonconventional credit requirements, raising a $200M global reparations fund, or investing in Black– and Native-led cooperatives focused on marketdriven climate solutions, community-governed integrated capital funds are a key component to building a regenerative economy. 

We support these funds and their leaders to raise and deploy multiple kinds of capital, make collective decisions, and to make life easy for investees so they can take on a more vocal and proactive role by focusing on impact.

  • Flexibility to design loan terms that center borrowers, move large grants to businesses, and make non-extractive equity investments 
  • An integrated financial management platform that allows you to manage integrate capital deployment, communicate with collaborators, and move money quickly to borrowers and grantees 
  • A team of experts to strategically think through complex challenges that may arise in the raising or deploying of integrated capital
