C3 Fund Mission

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.

Our Impact

The C3 Fund will place capital into low to moderate income census tracts in a way that is beneficial for the borrower and the community.

The four pillars that C3 focuses on are:

1) Closing wealth gap for BIPOC and women investors

2) Revitalizing historically disinvested neighborhoods


3) Creating quality affordable and workforce housing

4) Creating quality jobs for local subcontractors

Specialty lending requires specialty lenders. C3 Fund works to be the best in lending to small business entrepreneurs who work in the building and housing space.

For a community to thrive economically it requires financial services, and access to investment capital. C3 steps into that gap and fills a need.
