Lender & Partner
As your partner and advocate, we work to secure financing solutions that meet your individual needs and circumstances. We have more than 30 years of lending experience and can further utilize our relationships with traditional financial institutions, insurance companies, pension funds, foundations and impact investors to leverage their funds to support a range of community building projects.
See Opportunity, Not Risk
Where many lenders may only see risk supporting projects in low to middle income communities, we see opportunity to create financial and social impact. We focus on supporting health centers, charter schools, mixed income housing, Co-ops, healthy food access projects and dignified aging alternatives to create a strong fabric of opportunity for all people at every stage of life.
We do not just measure results based on the return on our balance sheet. Social impact drives our work. We want to see jobs created, kids educated, healthier lives, access to housing, strong businesses and elders living independently in their homes. When we deploy our financing to make this happen it is a win-win for us, our borrowers and investors – and most importantly – those living in communities across this country.
Loans That Fit Your Needs
Every project is different and we work to match your needs with the right product. Our range of expertise includes bridge, acquisition, construction and working capital loans. This allows us to work with you on everything from equipment purchasing to expansion and renovation to permanent financing.
Support for Innovation
Helping non-profit organizations, small entrepreneurs, large developers and multi-site organizations scale up their operations and impact is our goal. In addition to traditional transactions, we support innovative approaches that amplify impact such as school-based health care centers, mobile service providers and food hubs that service multiple businesses.
Flexible Terms and Timelines
We strive to provide you with loans aligned with real-world circumstances. We pride ourselves in issuing competitive loans that are also flexible and appropriately structured to fit your repayment abilities. This means offering financing ranging from $300,000 to multi-million dollar transactions, utilizing New Market Tax Credits and issuing long term bonds.

“Challenging as it was at times, the participation of Capital Impact Partners helped in what turned out to be a fairly complex financing package. “Without the…involvement of our financing partners, we would not be in the position we are today–restoration underway!”

“We are so grateful for the work Capital Impact Partners has done over the years in making capital available in underserved, low-income markets. They have gone where many traditional banks would not… Their track record of 30 years — developing and replicating social innovations that provide critical resources and support for health centers across our nation – speaks for itself.”

“It’s very different than going to bank and receiving money, because [Capital Impact Partners] really care. They really care about whether we are going to reach our goals.”
