We hope to launch an online investment platform by the summer of 2014. Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear when it goes live!

Every dollar invested in the Note goes to a professionally managed portfolio of high impact organizations creating jobs, building affordable housing, promoting education, protecting the environment, and creating numerous other social impacts

Our team uses industry-leading due diligence to carefully screen each organization we lend to, and every dollar we raise goes to invest in those organizations, not in our operations. In fact, we have a 100% repayment rate to our investors in the Community Investment Note.*
