Places where all people have access to high quality services that foster good health, economic growth, and interconnectedness.

Our Equity Vision Statement

As a Community Development Financial Institution, our mission is to break down the barriers that communities experiencing historical disinvestment and systemic racism find between themselves and their goals. Knowing the barriers these issues create, Capital Impact continually focuses on integrating equity more deeply within our strategy, as well as within the very framework of our organization.

To ensure we continue to increase our impact along this journey, we have created our first Equity Vision statement with guidance from The Justice Collective, which you can read here. In addition, we are now publicly tracking progress in our Annual Report and careers page in how we support this vision both internally and through our work with communities.

Capital Impact Partners envisions a world where everyone prospers. We embody equity as a workplace by embedding such in our structure, culture, policy, and products. In partnership with community, we endeavor to shatter the barriers created by systemic oppression in the pursuit of equitable access to resources that promote generational wealth development.
