Coastal Community Foundation is launching a new, competitive initiative called Place-Based Impact Investing to invest up to $3 million in regional projects focused on positive community outcomes.
We are pleased to launch this investment strategy that 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.
We invite you to attend our information session on April 9th to learn more about how your organization or project could benefit from applying for capital from our inaugural fund.
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
-Affordable places and inclusive spaces
Organizations with projects in process or launching within the next six months and seeking capital are invited to attend and find out more about the initiative and timeline. The session is free and open to the public, but space is limited. Please RSVP by emailing email@example.com. If you are unable to attend but would like to learn more, please contact us at 843-723-3635.
