Our Work

Our idea is simple. Our work is pioneering. Our results are far reaching.

Partners’ mission is to advance economic justice and racial equity by partnering with and strengthening financial institutions to bring capital,create opportunity, and build wealth.

We do this by creating new tools for mission-based lenders to manage liquidity, portfolio concentration, loan limits, and other challenges that hinder the growth of community development finance. We also help socially motivated investors put their money to work safely with high social impact organizations.

We finance projects that advance:

  • affordable housing
  • nonprofit working capital
  • mission focused enterprise
  • entrepreneurs and healthy communities in the US and abroad

“Partners helped make it happen. You were a believer, a partner, and a friend at every step.” Learn more about Partners' pioneering model of national participation lending.

Our work helps build infrastructure that enables CDFIs to increase the scale of their impact across the country. We lead through our participation network, policy and advocacy, and CapNexus.
