Capital Impact Partners

Capital Impact Partners is a national Community Development Financial Institution that invests capital and commitment to help people and communities break the barriers to success. As part of its larger mission-driven efforts, Capital Impact supports the cooperative model as a tool to disrupt income inequality, steward community ownership, and empower workers who have been locked out of the mainstream economy. Over the years, CIP has disbursed over $305 million in loans to over 220 food, worker, and housing cooperatives across the country. Capital Impact Partners was one of the initial funders to support the creation of the W20 collaborative through our annual Co-op Innovation Award and continues to support the ecosystem through grant funding and financing.
