While lending is a primary activity at Capital Impact Partners, it is a means to an end: we use capital as a tool to effect positive change in underserved communities across the country. As a mission-driven lender, our true impact is felt when we finance projects that create jobs or provide needed services or opportunities for those most in need. We invite you to spend a few moments reading our stories of impact and learn more about the lives we have touched.
