Before impact investing was on the radar of most investors, one company was hard at work shaping the future of community investments—IMPACT Community Capital.

We are pioneers of the impact investment space, founded in 1998 solely to generate institutional quality, purpose-driven investments and we have maintained our focus ever since. IMPACT was among the first to use securitizations to deliver capital in scale for affordable housing.

With $1.9 billion of investments originated to provide affordable housing, healthcare, childcare and economic opportunities, we look to guide new investors seeking to unleash the power of capital to transform communities.

There’s a lot of excitement generated by impact investing today. At IMPACT, our 19-year focus provides us with a clear-eyed view. We see an opportunity for capitalism to play an even larger role in bridging investment opportunities with community benefit—at a moment in history when society demands it.

We offer not just a vision, but also a proven platform for investors seeking to transform communities without compromise to investment quality or performance.

IMPACT is leading a new era of investing, with a proven platform that seeks

positive returns for investors and America’s communities.


Steadfast Stewardship. We are thoughtful guardians who own our fiduciary responsibility, with the discipline to build and reward the trust of our investors.

Always Tenacious, Never Satisfied. We know what we want to accomplish and we are resolute in our pursuit of exceptional returns and impact.

Stakeholder Obsessed. In serving our investors, co-workers, communities or partners, we relentlessly strive for positive outcomes.

Tomorrow Focused. We see where the world’s headed and understand what it takes to meet the evolving needs of investors and communities.

Integrity Above All. We are open and honest at any cost, standing behind our work and our words unequivocally.
