Place-Based Impact Investing

 

Click here to listen to the audio from our Info Session.

On Monday, April 9th, Coastal Community Foundation launched a new, competitive initiative called Place-Based Impact Investing (PBII) to invest up to $3 million in regional projects focused on positive community outcomes.

Our application is live now, and the deadline for you and your organization to apply is Friday, April 20th by 11:59 p.m. Find more info on how to apply, below.

About this Initiative

 

This investment strategy combines the traditional investment priority of earning financial returns with an intentional emphasis on social returns for our region. CCF is one of the few community foundations in the Southeast to employ a place-based impact initiative as part of our overall organizational strategic framework. CCF is launching the first investment portfolio under this new initiative with the intention to launch future portfolio investments.

Loans, loan guarantees, and/or equity investments for approximately projects seeking between $50,000 and $600,000 in capital will be chosen from a pool of qualified applicants from across our nine-county footprint. Projects must illustrate the promise of both social and financial returns, and preference will be given to projects focused on one of the following three themes:

  • Access to economic opportunity
  • Education
  • Affordable places and inclusive spaces

Our application is live now, and the deadline for you and your organization to apply is Friday, April 20th by 11:59 p.m. Find more info on how to apply, below.
