C3 Fund Mission

Financing solutions for local investors who live and work in underserved LMI (low to moderate income) communities.

C3 Fund – CDFI

Community Development Financial Institutions play an important role in generating economic growth and opportunity in underserved communities. The CDFI designation is awarded by the US Treasury to mission-driven financial institutions that support economically disadvantaged communities through the injection of new sources of capital into neighborhoods which have historically lacked access to financing.

C3 Now a Member of OFN

Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) is the national association of Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). CDFIs create positive changes across America by financing individuals and projects that create and maintain living-wage jobs, spark small businesses, build quality, affordable homes, and invest in vital community facilities. These mission-driven investors bring creative and transformative finance to all the communities they serve. And OFN provides capital, advocacy, and capacity building to help OFN member and non-member CDFIs create impact.
