Our founding director, Jeremy Nowak led the organization at a time when the idea of a financial institution dedicated to providing financing in support of wealth creation was new. The idea of investments that provided both financial and social returns was just beginning to take shape. In many ways, Reinvestment Fund was a grand experiment.
A prolific writer and thinker, Jeremy created an institution that united schoolteachers and executives with faith-based organizations, philanthropy, banks and government to invest in communities. He championed a mission that aimed to give every family the opportunity to get a quality education for their children, safe homes and strong neighborhoods, good care and nutritious food to be healthy, and economic mobility. And in that pursuit, he helped build the foundation for an entire sector devoted to opportunity finance.
