For Financial Institutions

Rethinking Community Development

Partnership is at the center of our work

Today more than ever before, communities with economic challenges need the financial expertise that CRF and its partners provide.

We partner with financial institutions, including local, regional and national banks, to channel more capital into economically challenged communities, helping them achieve their community development goals and promote economic prosperity.

Solutions that create lasting change

CRF’s size, scale, technology know-how, financial sophistication and vast network of community partners make us the perfect partner for those seeking new ways to drive measurable community impact. Our partnership offers financial institutions innovative solutions to grow development finance capacity and capabilities in communities, catalyze local ecosystems and assist when small business owners are unable to access conventional financing. Most importantly, because of our vast partner network, we can deploy capital at scale to highly targeted geographies, like a bank’s geographic footprint.
