Capital for Change (C4C) is a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) with a 50-year history of providing more than $300 million in financing and technical assistance to preserve and create affordable housing for underserved populations, adopt energy efficiency and alternative energy measures to decrease costs and improve environmental impacts, and support small business development. C4C was created through merging three Connecticut-based CDFIs in 2016 that was designed to increase capacity to better meet the needs of low-income persons and communities in Connecticut by increasing affordable housing, creating jobs and improving the environment. Along with its growing financial support from banks, state and federal agencies and foundations, C4C seeks to expand on its successful, 30-year history of financial support from social impact investors.
Invest With Values Sponsor
“On behalf of C4C, I am pleased to announce that C4C is an Invest with Values sponsor and look forward to connecting with its numerous individuals, foundations and faith-based and non-profit organizations from around the country who share the vision and commitment to the changes we pursue,” said President & CEO, Calvin Vinal. “We are excited to engage new investors who will increase our positive impact in the markets we serve by helping us raise at least $30M in Social Impact Investments over the next five years,” added Vinal.
Social Impact Investors
Social impact investors seek investments with the intention of generating a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside financial returns. Last year, C4C’s $15.7M in commercial lending produced 651 affordable housing units and created or supported 180 new jobs. C4C’s environmental impact included the removal of 1,076 metric tons of harmful Co2 from the environment, the equivalent of removing 230 passenger cars from the road. In exchange for a minimum investment of $1,000, Capital for Change offers investors a stable, fixed rate investment opportunity to grow your money and do good for our world!
