Our Values

Our values reflect what guides us as an organization. They also reflect the experiences of our past. These are the strengths that we continue to invest in and reinforce.

Create Opportunity


Drive our work by increasing equity of access to resources that strengthen communities and create economic opportunity.

Innovate


We innovate with market and evidence-based, scalable solutions that yield economic growth in low-wealth communities.

Lead with Data


Accurate data and objective analyses lead to wiser decisions in allocating capital and advising public policies.

Act and Reflect


Effective community impact is a sustained process of action and reflection — of calculated risks and learning; with no single starting point.

Organize Money and People


In areas of market failure, higher impact is possible when organized capital is combined with organized constituents.

Transcend the Transactional


Transforming places and increasing equity and access require deep commitment and lasting engagement that transcend the transactional.

Deliver Quality


Borrowers, partners and investors deserve high quality services, transparent and accurate reporting, accountability for effective deployment, and responsible policies.

Invest in People


We encourage and invest in excellence and diversity in our employees, Board members and volunteers. They are our most valuable assets in attracting partners, investors and borrowers who share our values.
