Mission: The organization is working to impact the world by making holistic investments to help all people, communities and businesses realize their full potential. We provide capital to the organizations and solutions which we believe have the most significant potential to impact their community by helping to create new markets for the underserved and opening access to critical goods and services.
Programs: Neighborhood economics: when we lack access to something that is required for our flourishing, community is broken, relationships are distorted, and problems emerge. The level of genuine impact within an area is a neighborhood, yet economic planning has historically been assumed into city-wide and regional approaches. The organization seeks to invest in, and encourage, the development of neighborhood-level economics. This takes the form of job creation, business development, housing solutions, commercial spaces, creative place making, and localized philanthropy. As we open up access for the underserved, we build the community we all desire to live in.
financial inclusion: in the united states, wealth inequality runs even more pronounced than income inequality. This lack of access to financial services worsens inequality and the cycle of poverty. Without access to financial services, low-wealth individuals become vulnerable to financial shocks, such as a car accident, hospitalization, or job loss. When families and individuals can save money; can access affordable financial services for home, school and business; as well as exchange money in a safe manner, they can begin to invest in a better future. Financial inclusion leads to greater individual, family, and community stability. Inclusion is of benefit to the person, as well as society at large. In 2014, the organization partnered to bring kivazip and 0% financing to louisville as well as created a micro-loan program to partner with unbanked small businesses to provide access to capital for them to thrive.
