Boston Community Ventures We're proving that investment in growth-oriented local businesses can be both a sound financial proposition and an effective way to build stronger communities.

OVERVIEW

Description

Boston Community Capital is a nonprofit community development financial institution. Since 1985, we have invested over $1 billion in projects that provide affordable housing, good jobs, and new opportunities in low-income communities, connecting these neighborhoods to the mainstream economy.

We were founded by a group of individuals from Old South Church with $3,500 in start-up funds and a vision of an organization that would stand at the intersection of downtown expertise and community values, bridging gaps between people and places to build a better world.
