Boston Community Capital
Boston Community Capital is a nonprofit community development financial institution. We were founded in 1985 by a group of individuals 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. Over the years we have evolved in both capacity and knowledge. But our vision remains unchanged. Today, 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 are committed to working together with our peers and partners across the nation toward our goal of an inclusive prosperity that ensures that low-income people and communities have access to the tools they need to create wealth, opportunity and lasting change. Whether we are financing a health center or a charter school, solar panels or a saw mill, a low-income family or an established developer of affordable housing, our focus remains on developing financial tools, programs and ideas that provide access to opportunity, bridge gaps rather than widen them, and offer the potential and promise to change the world.
