Location Philadelphia, PA (Hybrid)

Reinvestment Fund is a mission-driven financial institution committed to making communities work for all people. As a federally certified community development financial institution (CDFI), we bring financial and analytical tools to partnerships that work to ensure that everyone has access to essential opportunities: affordable places to live, access to nutritious food and health care, schools where their children can flourish, and strong, local businesses that support jobs. We use data to understand markets, communities, and impediments to opportunity—and how investment and policy decisions can have the most powerful impact. We are part of coalitions that work to shift how entire sectors work to dismantle systems that perpetuate social and economic inequality.

Since our founding, we have put more than $2.4 billion to work for good — investing in projects that are both targeted and transformative. We have worked with scores of policymakers in cities, states, and federal agencies and helped millions of people nationwide access critical services and amenities. By tailoring financing solutions, fostering local partnerships, building coalitions, and informing strategies for tackling systemic injustices, we are charting paths and forging collaborations that catalyze positive, lasting impact.
