We partner with other Community Development Financial Institutions and Community Reinvestment Act-motivated organizations to invest in low-income people and communities across the country. Our participation lending finances community economic development projects in three main areas:
Innovation meets Impact. Money meets Mission. Capital meets Community.
What is CapNexus?
Developed by Partners for the Common Good, CapNexus is a searchable online database that matches money and partners to community development finance opportunities. CapNexus enables mission driven capital to get to the borrowers and places that need it -- when they need it.
Partners for the Common Good (PCG) is a national, experienced, mission driven participation lender. We partner with other Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs) to provide capital to low-income people and communities by bringing capital and specialized knowledge of our target sectors to our lending partners. Our loan products include: affordable housing, community facilities and commercial real estate.
"Working with PCG has been very beneficial to our loan fund, primarily because it has allowed us to participate in larger loans that have had a greater impact on our target market. PCG has helped to build our capacity as a small and emerging loan fund, offering their expertise on multiple issues."

Our history is rooted in the corporate responsibility movement of the 1970s. Using their corporate investments, religious institutions pressured companies to provide better working conditions or disinvest in Apartheid South Africa. These institutions also aimed to use a portion of their retirement and other investments to encourage access to capital for credit-starved low-income communities in the United States and to proactively support community organizations whose values resonated with their own.
