That’s why we’re part of a financial movement to eliminate racial disparities and uplift community-led solutions so everyone can flourish. As you look to grow, build wealth, and invest in your community, we’re your partner on the road to actualizing your dreams.

Places We Serve
Standing shoulder-to-shoulder with communities, we work together to create programs that address the needs of the people we partner with. We start by listening carefully to locals, and then we co-create financial services and programs to build on community strengths. Taking a “place-based” approach to investing in communities allows us to foster deep connections with people that help us learn more about their community. Together, we create new pathways to support self-determination and locally-led visions of equity, access, and opportunity.

Go with us behind the scenes to see how we support social impact projects that create equity, opportunity, and inclusiveness.
STORIES OF IMPACT
Building communities through equitable, affordable housing

Through equitable and affordable housing solutions, Capital Impact is helping Ronnie and others create stable and healthy communities.
Transforming health care to meet
While health centers and clinics serve millions of patients, there are still many who are unable to make it to those facilities. OLE Health is bridging that gap by taking its services on the road to meet patients where they are. The result: more equitable access to quality health care for more people.
