Empowering Investors to Empower Communities

June 2013

 
 

Dear Friends,

As last month’s e-newsletter landed in your inboxes, we were scrambling to get everything in our old office prepped for the move! Even though it came down to the wire, our move teams and IT department did a great job of getting everyone relocated and set up to be productive on Monday morning.

Our new address is:

7315 Wisconsin Ave.
Suite 1000 W
Bethesda, MD 20814

The move illustrates the theme that we chose for our 2012 Annual Report: The Journey Forward. It’s the spirit of forward energy, moving ahead alongside our community of portfolio partners, investors, and supporters.

We encourage you to check out the report, and to continue tweeting, commenting, liking, and investing for positive change. Thanks for your continuing support!
